Hello guys,
Just got a 2006 SLK 280, I love it.
I filled up the tank for the first time and everytime I get in the car I feel a strong smell of gas, with engine off.
Now that I am driving little bit, so the gas level is going down, the smell is lower.
Any one had this problem?
I have an idea of what to do, It happened to me with another car, it was the whose that connect the gas door hole to the thank.
anyone as photos or can tell me how to get to the hose and the tank?
thank you

Marco

check the fuel lines by lifiting the car up
check the fuel pump and filter
check the fuel tank neck and cap
check the fuel line feed to the engine

Any time you smell gas fumes it has to do with the EVAP system. Do you have a check engine light? I assume not, but there may be a pending code. Can you check for pending malfunction codes? A code will point you in the right direction, Most likely you have a worn out hose or a fuel filler neck leak.
