HELP...STRONG Gas Smell in 2001 E55

849 Views 1 Reply 1 Participant Last post by  easy55
Well my wife did the unthinkable. She drove off and left the hose in the fuel filler tube at the Gas Station:.:mad: Thanks God she drove off slow. The gas pump was pulled out as she drove off, however, now I notice gas coming out around the Gas Cap and the seal around the filler tube. Any ideas....Also the plastic piece inside the filler tube had a broken clip but I was able to put that and the rubber O-ring back inside the filler neck but I still have a STRONG gas smell and gas seeping. Please help!

Problem Fixed

It was the rim where the Gas Cap screws on. It was bent a little. Fixed now...! No leaking or gas smell. A little research goes along way!:thumbsup:
