Default I just bought a 2008 Honda Civic (rebuilt title) and I smell gas, what could it be?

I just bought a rebuilt car (08 civic) and I noticed that every time I drive it and stop the car, it gives me a scent of gasoline. Only when I stop or park the car. What could be causing that?

You should not smell gasoline unless the cap on the filler spout is open. Check under your hood for any leaks, as this can be a dangerous condition.































If you can determine the location of the leak (most likely at the fuel pump on the gas tank or in the injector manifold, and are handy with tools you might attempt to fix this. Be very careful as the manifold pressures are very high and you must use proper care to avoid spilling or sudden depressurization, the Maintenance manual will have a procedure for this.































If you are at all uncomfortable with working on the gas system, take it to a qualified mechanic.

That's a problem then. You best go find whomever rebuilt the car and ask what they screwed up in fixing properly.































Good luck...you'll need it!

A leak somewhere.































Depending on where the car was damaged it could be related.































I had a Honda that leaked whenever the tank was full. If yours only leaks after you had the tank filled and you don't notice it at other times then it is possible that it is leaking where the filler neck connect to the gas tank which is the problem I had. It took 3 attempts to fix it before the problem was solved.
