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 crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
