Is there a remedy for the removal of the smell of Gas?

Asked by Aug 09, 2015 at 05:14 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I recently bought gas for my 2008 corvette the gas pump kept pumping gas and
some apparently got under the car and in the frame underneath. Even after washing the
car including the under body, it still smells when in the confined space of the garage. Is
there another solution to eliminating the smell...am I missing something?

I will evaporate in a day or two or three and smell no more.

Had the same thing happen to my '93 Caprice once. As Bob said it'll take about 2 or 3 days and the smell will go away. HTH. -Jim
