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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
