KIA Optima Gas Odor

Asked by Dec 02, 2015 at 08:26 AM about the 2013 Kia Optima EX

Question type: General

I have a 2013 KIA Optima and I continually get a smell of gas odor coming through the vents.  One day the odor was so strong it felt like I was sitting at a gas station.

I would bring it in and have it checked ASAP. Gas fumes are not something to mess with. You could possibly have a leak at the fuel rail and the fumes are being sucked in through the cowl.

I'm having the same issue with my 2015 optima. I found where the smell is coming from and can actually see the gas dripping. I only have 16,000 miles on the car.
