Most likely have leaky fuel injectors. It can be most anything that would causeover rich/ not burning fuel to be pushed past the rings. If the car seams to be running fine (not missfiring) the sparkplugs and wiring is probley ok. Butif under load there is a miss replace both. A good way to tell if you have one or more leakingfuel injectors, the plug for that cyl/injector will be much darker (even black)from the over supply of fuel. I would start off with pulling all plugs and ifany are fouled replace them. Noting witch hole they were in. Run around own for10 or 15 miles, pull the plugs that were fouled and compair it to another holethat was running clean, and if the new plug is starting to get sooty (gettingdark) you found which injector is leaking. If it is not fouling to fast try theinjector cleaner (works best on 1/2 tank or less). You can buy the cleaner fromany auto supply store, takes any ware from 5 to 30 miles before the cleaningstarts to take. If the cleaner does not help replace that injector.

Hope this helps you, Ben Parker, San Jose, Ca

Gasoline has a distinct smell. It smells strong, like petroleum and it can cause a person to feel ill if it is smelled too long.

Yes, gasoline is bad to breathe because when and if you breathe your lungs react to like its smoke. Did I answer it, or is it to complicated, okay the main answer is:YES!!!!!!!

The smell of gasoline comes from the vapors it gives off. In time, the smell should disappear naturally. If you'd like to speed that process up, a good cleaning with a saddle soap will help.

Only one reason. Gasoline is mixed with the oil.

Not sure about the gasoline part but if you have diabetes you can smell of acetone on the breath and urine. Check it at the doctors because it's a serious condition when you are pregnant.

Most likely cause is a leaky fuel injector o-ring. Otherwise, look around the car for signs of fuel leaks.

They are used to protect clothes in storage from moth species that feed on certain fabrics. They look like cotton balls and smell like gasoline.

Similar to any other scent, like or dislike is based on personal preference. A lot of people have psychological association behind it, such as remembering a pleasant road trip or another endeavor involving gasoline.

Well, it could have soaked up some gasoline. Many fake leather products absorb moisture more effectively than real leather.

A person can tell the difference between diesel and petrol by the smell. Diesel is going to smell more like oil. Gasoline smells more like vinegar.

Most IKEAs would probably smell like any other furniture company on the inside. What it smells like depends on the time and exact location in which you are. Closer to the restaurant in IKEA, it might smell more like food, probably like mashed potatoes and meat balls, but other meals are served as well. Out side it is difficult to say, but it might smell like gasoline, because most IKEAs have a parking lot outside.
