gas fume smell

If i remember correctly my 13' gt has been like this since i got it. I get this gas fume like smell(not strong) inside the car only when the car has been shut off and parked for more than 24hrs. It was the same smell back when i test drove at the dealership, smell was gone quickly after then ac was on and i thought it was the new weird car smell at the time. I never smell anything when im driving, i have checked under the hood and under the car best i can for any wet spot but have found none. If there was a leak, check engine lighf would be on right?Any ideas?

Igot the same thing in my '10. It happened when I was driving around Tucson, really hot, in traffic with people inthe back seat. Like to much of a load or something. Hasnt happened since.

there's a charcoal canister under the spare tire well. maybe make sure the lines to it are not pinched. there is one "disconnected" one near the filler; that's intentional, it's an overflow.

I finally got the chance to check and I didn't find anything under the spare tire rather this thing next to the spare tire



Also i notice while i was checking under the hood again for leak is my coolant running a tad below min. The car only has 8k miles. I notice driver side tend to smell alittle more of the gas fume. Why is my engine check light not on? broken?

It's a huge black plastic box under the tire well, you can't miss it.

well you seem to be wandering around taking pictures of things that aren't it so, I assumed you were looking in the wrong places. That thing in the trunk well is your automatic fuel shutoff in the event of an accident.

You may need to do some removing of the box cover to get a look at the canister itself.

I've got the same smell. I've got a 2011. Recently bought another truck so the stang has been parked in the garage. I've got 50k miles on it as daily driver before I parked it. But now when I crank it up on the weekends to drive it the smell is instant for about five minutes or so then goes away. I can not figure it out either??????

I get gas fume smells all the time in mine, especially after a large pot of chili or messican food.
