First start-up in morning there is a strong smell of gas. Not when driving. Stopped at a light, the smell sometimes (50%) returns.
I have a 2001 Pontiac Trans Am fordor with standard six cylinder and AT, with 113 K miles. The amount of fuel in tank doesn’t seem to matter.
What I’ve done:
My mechanic, who is very good, smelled gas when he first started it, but was unable to smell gas after that and for 11/2 days. He checked all fuel lines/connectors and found no leaks. He has a niggling suspicion it could be the vapor recovery system.
My wife primarily drives the car and getting her to check mileage at fill-up is like lifting the car over my head.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice.
