Whenever I start my car, I smell a strong smell of gasoline. I looked under the car and there is no evidence of leaks. I also turned on the car and looked under the hood and did not see any obvious leaks. What do I do, or how can I get rid of the smell?!

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Jennifer, You should get this looked at right away. You should not be able to smell gas, especially in the vehicle. You may not think you have a leak or it might just be that you can't see it. Before this becomes a potentially dangerous situation, have it looked at by a trained technician.
