I took my pickup ('87 Toyota gasoline carbureted 4-cylinder) for an emissions test today. The guy refused to test it because it smelt so strongly of gasoline. There was gasoline on the ground, and I could smell it too, and he’s been straight with me before, so I drove home instead.
The bottom of the gas tank is dry, as is the filter (which is near the tank, in front of a wheel well) and the lines underneath. The lines in the engine compartment are dry too, as is the outside of the carburetor. I put paper down, haven’t collected any gasoline yet.
There was gas on top of the air cleaner, on the outside, and on the bottom of the inside. I assume this is wrong, but I’ve never checked before. It seems to run okay. I started it for the first time since 2020 October 2. It started up immediately and ran okay.
