Most likely you have a gas leak some where depends where u smell it if you smeel it near the gas cap it is prolly leaking out of you hose under the car and if you smell it on the engine the you car is flooding the engine with gas When I had a gas smell when driving it was a bad fuel injector. Cost over $150 to replace. Luckily it was only 1 and not all of them. April ==I agree with April== I had the same problem with my '96. I replaced the O rings on two leaking injectors. It helped but didn't solve the problem. I replaced the leaky injectors (one at a time due to financial restraints) which DID solve the problem. The injectors cost about $76 each at Auto Zone. My mechanic replaced them for a case of beer each. Ya gotta love a local, talented mechanic! Did I mention that my mechanic is female? FriPilot
