88 fj62 - I get intermittent gasoline odors inside ny cruiser - pretty strong. Put on new gas cap, as old one seemed loose. Didn't fix it. Don't smell any odors from engine compartment. Odor seems to be coming from the rear. Haven't found any leaks. Gas tank was replaced through a recall many years ago. Anyone know what the problem is?

Thank's

I have the same problem on my '96. I just park it outside. Check the archives. I read something about this problems, but have not had a chance to work on my truck.

had a similar problem in my 60...Go to the rear panel on the pass. side (assuming LHD), near the fuel filler neck and pop it off. you should see a "breather box" or something like that with several hoses coming in and out of it. Check for rust, leaks, cracked hoses, etc. My problem was that one of the connectors was totally rusted and was leaking raw fuel into my inside wheel-well.

This is usually the cause. It's always a good starting place.

I sometimes get this in my 40 after I fill it up all the way, especially if I go wheelingh afterwards. I try to leave it a few gallons shy of full.
