Fuel/oil smell

Is anyone else having issues with smelling gas and / or engine oil not only in the passenger compartment but also when you walk in front of the car and also under the hood? It usually occurs after it is warmed up or driven for a little while. Any thoughts? I can’t find anything leaking anywhere.

Did you maybe spill some oil on the engine when you were topping up the oil (or even just measuring the oil with the dipstick)?

No. The engine is as clean as the day I brought it home. I wish it was that simple.

Gas and hot engine oil actually smell distinctly different. Perhaps sniffing a sample of each will help you to narrow it down.

I'm having gas odors from the inside and outside of my Eclipse Cross too. It has been going on for the past 3 months. My wife gets headaches from it and it's getting to where she doesn't even want to be in it. We've even had people at the outside of it ask if we had a fuel leak.

The technician could not duplicate the smell. When I picked it up I smelled it again as soon as I hit the key. I went back in and got the technician and he again could not smell it. But my wife was complaining about it the whole way home.
He said he checked it all over and there were no leaks of fluid at all. I am going to look for myself tonight.
