Hello folks: I need to pick your brains and/or experience with the following, please: Lately, I'd say after the last 3-4 fill-ups, I feel very strong smell of gasoline outside the car; nothing inside, no gas smell inside with the windows up and the climate on or off. The second last fill-up I even took the car out of the garage thinking of a hazard for explosion (I have the heating furnace room right underneath the garage floor). Of course after it happened first time I've been extremely careful when I fill up, making sure there is none spill whatsoever. The thing is that I can't see a single drop of gasoline running down anywhere visible, and no gas spot on the garage floor either. I'm very puzzled, ...and very worried (I'm a smoker, unfortunately; ...but not in the garage anymore). Ah, the strong smell is not only inside the garage, I can feel the same strong smell outside if I stand close to the car, around the rear or the car (not so much smell around the front). I opened the lid of the capless fuel entry (or whatever is called; I can't remember the proper name now but you know what I mean), and I can't feel enough gas smell coming directly from there, if any. Has anyone smelled something similar before? Any hints of a potential problem somewhere? Where should I look, check for signs of trouble? It's not in my mind, it's real, it's now happening repeatedly (at every fill up) but never ever before, outside or inside the car. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
I have a 2017 edge titanium and I get a horrible natural gas smell when I get in my vechile in the morning. Thus leading me to think the odor is either new from sitting overnight or I got used to the odor. As I was driving the 12 hours earlier. Now the smell is so bad that I open all windows and i still feel like throwing up for the next 20 mins. Does the smell biuld up overnight? Perhaps when I park at the end of driving all day the smell seems gone but really I got used to the smell and then in the am I smell it strong again because it is a fresh odor to me. I must say that I am more sensitive to natural gas smells that others. This is different than previous posts as most other posts talk about smells entering the cab during exceleration. . This is not my case. This smell is just the first 20 mins of driving. I have 1200 miles on my Edge and this was not a problem for the first 800 miles.
I've had my 07 AWD Edge for six months without any problems. Last week I noticed a gas smell. Today the tank is leaking from the top of the tank after a fill up. I don't believe it is a case of overfilling the tank. The stealership reportedly fixed the same problem before I bought it in December. They said they replaced the tank but I don't believe it - I think they either replaced a gasket or tried to seal the leak. If you have any experience with a similar problem, or replacing any gaskets on the tank or replacing the whole tank, your help would be greatly appreciated. Should I go to Ford, back to the dealership, NHTSA or all the above? Thanks in advance, Fullhouz
