Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently had my gas tank repaired due to it leaking from the seam. There was a recall
that ford put out but myI did have a leak in the gas tank underneath and has been repaired
but still have a gas smell. Took to repair shop to check again to find out what may be
causing it to smell. no leaks under vehicle so don't know what can be causing it.

I HOPE it's a residual odder and it goes away quickly. How long ago was the repair made?

90% of the time when you smell the gas,and see no leak,s,,and had some one work on it recently,that had to drop tank and remove fuel pump to do the repair,it will be that they did not seal the ring,where the fuel pimp lock,s in,gas will lay on top of tank,and you want see it on ground,but ,,you will smell it,,

The repair was completed approximately 2 weeks ago. It constantly smells. This morning when the garage door was opened you could smell the odor.

T_S_T - Ok I will mention this to the mechanic where the repair was made and see what they have to say and then what they want to do with it.

Well as this turns out there was a recall for a leaky gas tank. It is in the seam of the tank and once the tank was dropped it has a hole in the top I wanted to be sure to reply back so that if anyone has the same issue to please file a complaint Highway Safety website so that they can track it they may get a recall also. I am not sure if they recalled all 2008 Ford Edges for this issue or just the ones that complained. They came and picked up my car and will have it until 3rd quarter of 2015 due to no gas tanks available.
