Raw gasoline smell outside of 02 Grand Caravan eL...
Thoughts? It's been noticeable from time to time (but getting more common) for a couple years but I haven't yet looked into the issue. Fuel economy must be poor, just from my impression, haven't done an actual test to back that up yet though. What's the most common culprit here?
Other info, sorry, the van has a 3.3 (the same, sans some mount bosses, and with a different intake plenum and accessory mount system as in my 94 Intrepid), it is a flex fuel vehicle and has about 185k miles on it.
I had a '95 minivan that had a leaky PCV system and the seal at the back of the hood was loose and letting the fumes drift into the cabin. Frequently, I was convinced it was a fuel leak due to how strong the odor was. I fixed the broken PCV hose and the seal at the hood and the smell was fixed for good.
