Why might you smell gas fumes inside a 2001 Kia Sportage?
I had the same problem on my 2001 EX, usually when it was cold out, I would smell raw gas fumes. there is a spring clamp on the fuel pressure regulator intake, simply replace it with a flat spiral type clamp you can get at any hardware store or Home depot for 39 cents. when it's cold the spring type doesn't seal properly between the rubber hose and the metal pipe. when it warms up, it seals. just change the clamp.
Also might be the back door is not closing full enough to seal against the rubber edge , and the vaccum sucks up the fumes inside!.
most likely there's a leak in your heat exchanger (heater core). I took my new sportage to the dealer...The smell goes away when using max ac or recirculate...They inspected, pressure tested and found nothing. I believe the reservoir belches fumes and the air intake comes in from the wiper blade area...I am monitoring the reservoir level.
The next time you have the vehicle serviced ask to have the exhaust system inspected.

If you suspect there is a problem with the exhaust now, don't wait. Carbon monoxide fumes could be getting into the cabin area which can be deadly.

Is there some sort of tool that you can use to test the interior of a car for exhaust fumes if the mechanic says it is fixed but you can still occasionally smell some slight fumes?
Take a second, lightly sniff gasoline fumes before its been burned, then compare with exhaust fumes, and see which you are smelling. Exhaust fumes you'll naturally smell around an idling car. unburned gasoline could be the result of an improperly set carb, mixing the wrong amounts of fuel and air, leaving you with unburned gasoline that is boiled, evaporated, and spit out the exhaust. Too much evaporated gas turns your exhaust black, so ive been…
A "smell" is added to propane the same as a "smell" is added to natural gas. Some people describe it as being like old cabbage. I can attest that it is not pleasant and unless you have very poor sense of smell you will notice it. Don't ignore it if you do. Propane is heavier than air and will lie in a low area and is very combustible.
it depends on 2-3 factors. Firstly, your DNA structure. If you like the smell of Gasoline, then Iam quite sure you also like the smell of old socks. You might say its disgusting, you might think its disgusting, but the truth is, inside you know it pops the curiosity bubble. However, if you like the smell of Gasoline, check with your parents, 99% one or both of them like it too. There are certain protein…
