    gotta get this old girl up to snuff, some friends are coming in.

    we haven't driven this car for a while but the last time we did, we
    started to notice a gas smell in the cabin. It comes from the trunk
    area, and though it's been sitting a while, the odor hangs around the
    car like bad vibes. opening the trunk you get a big whiff...

    where should I look first? I'm an experienced mechanic type but I
    don't know this car very well yet. I know there's some experience on
    this board. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Toward the left rear of the trunk, under the carpet is the access
    plate to the fuel tank.

    Remove the four phillips head screws which hold it down, lift it off
    and the bung plug to the tank, with hoses will be exposed.

    Look there.
