Why do i Smell gas outside car not inside?

Take a second, lightly sniff gasoline fumes before its been burned, then compare with exhaust fumes, and see which you are smelling. Exhaust fumes you'll naturally smell around an idling car. unburned gasoline could be the result of an improperly set carb, mixing the wrong amounts of fuel and air, leaving you with unburned gasoline that is boiled, evaporated, and spit out the exhaust. Too much evaporated gas turns your exhaust black, so ive been told, so there could be a sign.

What causes gas fumes in Saturn 2001 L-Series?

Is it gas fumes or exhaust? The only cause for a fuel smell inside the vehicle would be a fuel leak, so check the lines, tank, etc. for that. While you're underneath, check the exhaust. Sometimes exhaust can have a similar odor to fuel, so check for exhaust leaks under the vehicle and also check your rear door seals and trunk seals for damage or poor seal. Sometimes exhaust can be sucked in through poor seals. If you are unwilling or unable to get under the vehicle to check for exhaust and/or fuel leaks, take the vehicle to a shop and explain your concerns and ask that it be inspected. Breathing either fuel vapors or exhaust can have serious health and safety risks, so be proactive, do something about it before bad things happen.
