    I don't know if anybody has had this problem before but I had it happen to two of my Mustangs, gas fumes smell through my air vents, I fixed the problem by replacing Vapor Canister Purge Valve, so I thought I would share.

    Interesting I have that smell coming through the air vents but only when the car is running rich on a bama tune. No tune and no richness = no smell through air vents for me. Thanks for sharing.

    I've had the same problem, however, in my case it was just the vacuum hose that ran into the vapor canister.

    I would only smell it when I turned the A/C on

    my bama tune ran so rich my eyes were watering at lights while trying to get to the dyno. The only time I didn't like side exhaust....
