    Loud gas smell

    I have a '94 Trans Am GT convertible. I noticed that after a long cruise, I smell fuel towards the rear of the car after shutting it down. I have looked for leaks, but couldn't find any. Could it be the cannister or is there more to it?....

    Could be a lot of things...start simple with replacing the fuel cap, check the fuel lines around the fuel filter..

    Sounds like(smells)there is a leak in the vapor recovery system or a fuel line .You need to check closely when you can get it to smell-may just be a line come loose or a bad gas cap.Anyway a gas leak is pretty serious.

    No, the cats are intact. It only smells like fuel after it has had a long run.
