Smell gas inside car when idle or at start-up.

(2004 Nissan Maxima)
in Lutz, FL on January 18, 2011
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.

So what about if I took the car to 2 different mechanics and they couldnt find it, now what do I do?
