  • Gasoline Fumes

    Does anyone else experience gasoline fumes in the trunk and / or driving compartment? I think this may have been a topic years ago. I have it going on with my 74 TR 6 now.
    Thanks, Johnny Z

      There are probably several old threads in the search about this. There are a few common causes like pinholes in the gas tank, vent line issues, bad charcoal canister, leaking fuel pump. It doesn’t take much gasoline to make a lot of smell.

        I recall the vent line issue as a solution. All I have to do now is find it or re-install it.

      I just fit a new 5/16" hose over my vent line separation area yesterday. It is very fragile plastic--- don't heat it!. Heat the new 5/16" rubber and push it on an inch & a half. I used Jubilee clamps, probably not necessary for the vent.

      Now the 5/16" fuel line connector hose you definitely want to use clamps.
      And a heat gun to heat the rubber hose ends helps immensely.

      You didn't write whether the fumes were fumes of raw gas or were they fumes from the exhaust system?
      It makes a big difference in diagnosing your fume problem.

        Theres a pad under the tank which can get wet over time too.

        The screws attaching my float gauge, etc were loose, and a retighten/seal of those address my issue.

        And never overfill the tank. One click, thats it....
