1 Answer


Check the lines for the EVAP system. The EVAP system pulls gasoline vapor back to the engine to be burned instead of being released to the atmosphere. If you have a leak in one of the vapor return lines to the engine you'll get a gasoline odor. Since your '92 model is OBD I it may not trigger the check engine or service engine soon light.
