Getting Gas Smell out of vehicle

4 posts in this topic

Anyone have any product that removes the smell of gas in a vehicle. I was transporting an auger in my explorer and it must have leaked out some gas. I can't see any sign of where it spilled, however the vehicle smells pretty strong. The temp outside really made it difficult for me to drive with the windows down to air it out, and I am not sure that getting things wet with cleaners would be good in -20 either. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

CA

I have used Nilodor before and it works good. It comes in a little bottle and only need a drip or 2 to remove most smells. I have had gas spilled in the back of my Jimmy many times and it seems to work good to remove the smell. Just put a drop or 2 on the area with the spill and your good to go.

This has happened to me in my trunk. I left the trunk lid open overnight, and it fine the next morning.

WIth the Explorer, I would pull up the carpet in the area where the auger was placed and look for any dark spots underneith. In my Xterra it looked clean as a whistle, but had a gas smell. When I pulled the cargo area mat, it was clean on top, but there was a stain underneith. It reeked of gas...go figure. I pulled the mat and I'm trying to find something to kill the smell.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
