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.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
