Sometimes after I pull into the garage and get out of my car there is a strong smell of gasoline. It also seems to blow through my vents when I use my a.c. but not when I use the heater. I have a 1990 Camaro RS. It does not happen all the time, but seems to happen more when the weather is warm.

Fire estinguisher handy? You'd better get under the hood and look for obvious signs of a gas leak. If you can't see anything obvious, just light a match and........ scratch that. Get it looked at ASAP by a professional. Car fires are no bueno. I'm not joking about the fire estinguisher. Everyone should have one.

better check your car on http://carpoint.msn.com

there was a recall on 1990-1992 camaros and firebirds for a gas tank filler neck problem, this could be it if your car was not completed.
