Re: gasoline AC (peatr999)

its your charcoal canister under teh fender well and it probably has a backed up line. mine has the same thing, just turn on recirculate and you cant even smell it. when i had to move it lower i believe i broke mine so i need a new one but check the lines if they are plugged up

The smell shouldn't be dangerous because it is mixed in with air (O, N, CO2, CO). Just like at a gas station. You smell gas everywhere but the gas does not ignite because of the low concentration of gas even though cars are running when they pull out and stuff.
I remember learning about that stuff. There was a scientific term for this but I don't remember
