1999 Pontiac Montana Question: Smelling gas inside car. No visible leaks
Answer #1Brian Glastetter June 27, 2011, 21:52Master
The most likely cause of your concern is a malfunctioning evaporative emission system. This system contains the raw fuel vapors and burns them in your engine when the computer opens a valve electronically. A clogged carcoal canister may be the culprit, but a professional that understands the system needs to give it a look.

Thanks, I changed the canister some time back but that didn't help.
