We have a 1994 Dodge Grand Caravan and having a gas issue!

Asked by Oct 06, 2014 at 04:40 PM about the 1994 Dodge Grand Caravan 3 Dr SE Passenger Van Extended

Question type: General

My husband tried to fill the van up abt 2wks ago but would only hold about 6 gallons so thinking he figures his mileage wrong (gas gauge doesn't work) but he says no and knows it should be empty or close to it! Today, my husband comes home, smells gas and checks it....it's leaking around the gas cap. He takes the gas cap off....gas comes POURING out of the tank! The van runs fine...no sputtering, no pinging noises....NOTHING! It runs like a champ! Our mechanic says he's never heard of this. Can anyone help? Thank you!!

I suspect your husband overfilled the gas tank. Have the fuel gauge and or the sending unit repaired so the gauge works properly and all should be back to normal.

Possibly...except that he put gas in about 4 days ago and it just started spilling gas yesterday. Had it happened on that day, I could see that being the case; however, because it happened 4days AFTER he put gas in, I'm thinking that may not be the cause but thank you for your response =)
