When the car is running, i smell gas when i'm outside the car.
When i have the car running i have a gas odor only when i'm out of the car. i
don't see a leak. what could it be?
If raw fuel smell you most probably a leak you can't see or maybe you are smelling an exhaust leak? Have it checked out at your local garage.
I am a brand new owner of an '02 Saturn L300 (67,000miles) and after my first trip home I smelled gas! I googled it and on another site there were about 10 complaints questioning this exact same thing. A few different answers were given as a cause. I had the car inspected by a trusted mechanic before purchasing it and will be bringing it back to him asap to ask for his analysis on what it could be. The last owner on the previous site, was thinking the same thing as I was while reading the multitude of Saturn owners stating the "EXACT SAME PROBLEM". That Saturn should be held responsible for this "common" mechanical issue/defect and reimburse those who have had to get this "common Saturn issue" fixed. Isn't their any safe guard in place for matters like this? Just wondering
