Gas smell

I was just wondering if the smell of spilled gas goes away in a cab after it evaporates.

depends on how much was spilled. dry it the best you can and use some type of carpet cleaner to get the rest. if that doesnt help then you'll just have to wait a while for it to clear

I was hauling a gas ice auger. Smelled gas a little but didn't see it dripping so I figured it was just the vent in the cap. After seven miles with the window open a little, I looked back and saw a little puddle. It was maybe a half cup but it still smells. I soaked it up and figured it'd just evaporate the rest.
