Re: gasoline smell

When my 155 started smelling like gasoline it was the flexible gaspipes that got old, hardened and cracked. Certainly a fire hazard, and should be Identified and repaired.

If the gasoline smell is coming out of your exhaust, you ought to get it fixed before you blow up your expensive catalist!

BTW, do you notice a change in your MPG?

Re: gasoline smell

Possibly,check your fuel rail,pipes & connections for cracks/leaks.Used to have a pug 306 & the ceramic block cracked (a small white block connected to a rubbber fuel pipe under bonnet) & whole car inside & out was stinking in fuel.Hope this helps.
