1 Answer

Whenever I see something like you wrote, 'smells like it's flooding' do you smell gasoline when you are in the cabin? If so, please be so very careful about the risk of fire. Detecting the odor of gasoline, especially if strong and in the cabin is a dangerous situation. Sorry I can't help you with what the actual problem is, don't know much about Mitsubishi but if you have a fuel leak I recommend not driving it at all until repaired. There are some guys here that know Mitsubishi's very well, hopefully they will come along
