Spilled Gas Can

Heading home with gas for my lawn mower, the gas can tipped over and spilled onto the carpet in my SUV. Is this dangerous? Will this harm my vehicle or the garage if it is kept inside?

I did run across a similar question, but I did not have an account and cannot find it now.

THE GASOLINE will evaporate completely in a day or two… By now all danger is over, it’s just a matter of getting rid of the smell. Windows down for a few days…

It was that first 1/2 hour when there was extreme fire danger…Gas cans should not leak period, regardless of position.

Please get a new gas can right away. If this one leaked when it tipped over, then it’s leaking fumes all the time, which could be dangerous.
