Hello. Anytime you smell gas coming from your vehicle, it is a serious issue. Gas fumes are highly flammable and can easily catch fire. Gas fumes may also make you feel dizzy or light headed. Both can make operating a vehicle very dangerous. It is important to locate where the gas is leaking and make necessary repairs as soon as possible. This should be done by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
