We had the exact same problem and there was a federal recall for the gas line. The dealer fixed the problem at no cost.

Try checking the tank u do have to lift it with a jack but if its not the tank then it could be comming from the gas line which is under the van as well.

Smell gas while driving inside car


A leaking fuel line can be discovered by looking for gaspuddles under your car when parked. A fuel-injection line may also leak, causing you to notice the smell of gasfumes during and immediately after driving. A fuel-tank vent hose may also leak, causing unburned gas to exit your fuel system as vapor.24 Apr 2015

Cranking but not starting until second try.gas smell.Gas line replaced.Had spark plugs, fuel filter changed.Still having starting issues and today noticed leakage near gas tank.


Gas line was only repaired, not replaced. I don't repair gas lines because of this problem. The entire line is replaced, both of them, supply and return. From the tank to the injector rail. This is the reason for the long start. Loose of fuel pressure.

Possible fuel tank leak. Is the smell inside the car? If so there is an inspection cover under the back seat. If outside mist likely the fuel tank filler neck us rusted and leaking.

Check and see if you have any gas on the ground after you park your car. Check around the gas tank and gas cap. It's possible that the fuel pump (which is in the gas tank) has hoses that may be leaking. If this is a slight leak, it might only manifest itself via a gas odor into the trunk or passenger compartment. It might be a good idea to put the car on a hoist and follow the fuel lines from the engine to the fuel tank. There should a one line that takes the fuel from the fuel tank to the engine and another that brings back the excess. There should also be another line coming out of the fuel tank that is for venting. Unfortunately, the fuel pump and hose connections are not easily accessible and require either removing the gas tank or cutting a hole in the trunk to access it. You should definitely take care of this soon as leaks don't get better, only worse and it is a potential fire hazard. Good luck!

I had a pinhole develope in the bottom of the gas tank in my 99 Sportage. I had similar symptoms, could not find the leak because the insulation in the skid plate under the gas tank was soaking it up. There was a recall on some of the Sportages for this problem. You can give you VIN number to a Kia dealer and they can check or you can contact Kia directly. You might be able to get it repaired free of charge.

Gas smell


There has to be a leak in the fuel system. Has it been checked while running? There will be at least 2 lines. One will be pressure and the other is a return.
