Has anybody ever had this happen to them?We were curbside no traffic in park,windows up and air conditioner on.The inside of the car filled with very strong gas fumes,I put my face up to the vents and there is no question the fumes were coming from the vents.Opened windows and within maybe 10 seconds fumes were gone and no longer coming through vents.

Sometimes landscapers and others spill gas from the equipment and containers they have on trailers or trucks. I have smelled gas once or twice and believed it was from another vehilce.

I have had this in other vehicles (not the Terrain yet) it's amazing what smells the HVAC system will suck in.

Makes sense but after opening the windows the smell was gone and the car had not moved,would think if it was a spill from outside the vehicle the smell would have persisted?

Was this a one time thing or does it occur on a consistent basis?

yes it was a one time thing and one of the resaons I am not making it a major issue,but mention it because maybe somehow someway my problems are connected?I also had a starter that did not seem to know the car was alraedy started and kept engaging which has also been a one time thing.

Check your oil to see if theres any gas in it. My fuel pump needs to be replaced, its flooding everything with gas and the oil stinks. When the fuel pump gets bad it can filter in gas into your vents which could catch fine. you should get it checked out asap. start with checking your oil and go from there.

How is your gas mileage and what led you to realizing the fuel pump was bad?

My gas mileage was terrible. 13 to 15 MPG. I spoke with a few other people who had the same gas mileage and a few people mentioned the gas pump. its in the shop now getting diagnosed. i'm assuming its the fuel pump. Theres plenty of gas in the oil, but we'll see.
