I have been driving my car for about 6 months now and on random occasions I get a gas smell when I fill the tank all the way. I have put the car on a lift at work and give it the old lookseedoodle. I looked at the tank, lines, and the injectors and I saw no leaks. The smell never last that long though. Usually once I get the guage needle to go down a bit it goes away. Anyone have a bit of knowledge of that?:rolleyes:

did you check the top of the pump/filter assembly under the rear seat? Make sure the bolts are tight etc?
I didn't really look at that I was mainly looking for leaks. Is it under the passenger side or driver side rear?:confused:

He means under the rear bench where the fuel pump is located.

Have you also checked the charcaol canister lines. How does the car run

So can I lift the rear bench without damaging it? The car runs ok. The Idle gets rough when I turn on electrical things. I flushed and Seafoam'd the motor which made it lighten up on all that stuff. =)

I got the same exact problem on my 00 Elantra and cant figure it out! I got a fuel smell at certain times and other times I dont. I checked my lines on the lift, replaced fuel filter, checked canister, put new fuel cap, checked injectors and im still tryingto find out whats wrong. I plan to check it over again this sat and see whats up. If you find whats wrong with yours make sure to give me a holla on here and whatnot.

Problem fixed!

Went into my old job today and put the car on the lift and around the back where the evap canister is you have a hose running into it well after clamping it down, we put the car on a smoke machine which basically pumps smoke nitrogen into the gas and shows any leaks. After pumping the smoke we could see gas flowing out the top of the fuel filter! Replaced the top fuel filter inlet o-ring and now no more gas leaking under pressure.

yes i found the problem to be the black ring that tightens the fuel pump next to the fuel filter,i think its the pump? was loose needed screwing in and the smell was gone.
smell was seeping in through it and could put my finger directly in tank.
