If my car is in idle, especially when running heat or even dehumidifier, the smell of gas fills the inside of the car. This is even MORE true when I start my car in the morning. Even if it's been outside warming up for 5-10 mins, once I enter the car, I smell the strong gasoline odor immediately. What is the problem & how much "should" it cost...approximately?

    wow, stop driving this until you resolve this issue. you do not want to be on the 5 o clock news showing your car on fire somewhere. go to a shop and let them find out where the leak is located and give you a bid.
