Sulfur type odor - E85


#1

About a month ago while traveling through Nebraska I filled up with E85 fuel and since that day and numerous refills of gas without using E85 I have an overpowering odor similar to the smell of a natural gas leek or Sulfur in and outside of my truck. I am wondering if this is typical of E85 fuel and how to get rid of it?



Thanks,



Barry

Sulfer smell usually means a bad catalytic converter.

[b]If we knew the kind of vehicle you were talking about, and if it’s a Flex-Fuel vehicle, someone might be able to provide an answer.

It is a 1999 Chevy Silverado and I apologize as it wasn’t E-85 it was E-10. The truck hasn’t been converted to accept E-85.
