Has anyone else had problems with gas fumes in their garage? I've had my 2002 EX-L RES for about 2 months now. Several times I smelled gas fumes in the garage, but never thought it could be my new ody. (assumed it was a gas can or lawnmower). Then I saw SandyKC's post about this same problem, and thought uh-oh. I just want to know how common this is. I am going to dealer for 1st service in a couple of weeks and plan on mentioning problem to service manager. Thanks
for any feedback.

We have had our 2002 for 5 months, and no gas fumes in the garage. I would be concerned if I did smell gas fumes in the garage. Mention it to the dealer the next time you are there.

I would not be WAITING to find the source of those gasoline fumes. You could be courting an explosive situation and should at least leave your garage open until it is resolved. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS! ! ! !

I think I remember someone else have a similar problem. I did a search but couldn't find it here. Maybe it was on some other Odyssey board. Anyway I believe that person needed a new fuel pump to fix the problem

No gas fumes in garage. Ody is just over 3 months old.

How's that? Wouldn't the draft from the gas water heater continually draw in fresh air and keep excessive fumes from building up?

We had gas fumes comming from our 2001 EX. Here is what I wrote in a previous post:

"Sounds like we had the same problem (or similar) on our 2001 EX. After numerous trips to the dealer and after being accused twice of " over filling" the tank, the dealer decided to remove the entire fuel tank. They found a defective tank (which is made out of plastic) in the sender unit area (fuel pump). The tank was deformed (poor molding process) thereby causing fuel to spill out. They ordered a and installed a new tank and sender unit cap (it was deformed as well)... Everything works well know."

Hope this helps. By the way pressure testing the fuel system did not reveal the problem. The leak was on top of the tank.

If one wants to play the "maybe" game, I guess he can. If the vapors happen to accumulate somehow, it won't matter how it "should" work. In this sort of case, caution is the best way to go.......

RonD - There was another post on the problem, it is on the 2nd page in this forum - search on "fuel fumes in garage"! I know it drives me mad when I can't find something so I thought I'd mention this.... It is so hard to maintain any consistency in terms.
