Asked by Sep 07, 2013 at 10:18 AM about the 2001 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

there are no obvious leaks around the fuel tank. what are the causes of the odor?

1 Answer

I don't care if you see leaks or not but have it towed to the shop. DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR, The risk of fire or being overcome by fumes (you did say strong) is not worth it. Now that being said, it's probably in the EVAP somewhere
