Here are a few causes of fuel odor, regardless of the year or make of the car or truck: * leak in fuel feed or vent line. * tank overfilled! * Evaporative emissions system canister clogged. * vapor leaks from system lines. fuel presure regulator, if this does not operate correctly it dumps too much gas into your engine!!

Your 1996 Escort might smell like gas when it is not running because of a damaged gas tank or damaged fuel lines. Leaking injectors or a leaking tank can also cause that smell.

The cause is the ethyl mercaptan contained.
