You bought a used vehicle out of warranty and you think you have a Small Claims issue ? Good luck with that . Just have an independent shop solve the problem and be done with it.

  1. We can’t see any article.

  2. You will not prevail in court so save your money for a mechanic to fix the problem.

you should not be topping off the gas. just stop when it clicks off. that is probably why you are smelling the gas fumes.

Why you should never 'top off' your gas tank


Don’t top off, and have your car’s evaporative recovery system tested.


There’s a problem with the over-fill/roll-over check valve in the Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery system.
