I have an imaculate 1985 190e and am getting a fuel smell in the cabin
and from the rear boot, trunk of the car the cap looks good and the
filler overflow is fine. i have read threads and looks the caps can
leak even though it looks fine. it has a black rubber ring on the
ratcheted cap.I have filled the cap with liqud and it does not leak
but i would dig some feedback here.
The smell seems to be in the rear though. isn't the filler fitted with
a slop mechanism or does the fuel really come up that far when
Thanks guys please post soon.
I had the same problem in my 89 190e and I solved it by replacing the gas
cap. If you have the problem mostly when you fill up, that will fix it. If
the problem is constant regardless of fuel tank level, then I have no clue
where to start.
Had the same problem on my '75 450sl. It had the wrong gas cap.
The new one from the dealer was $4.95. I can hardly believe that was all
it cost to fix it after all the hoses and and stuff we replaced.
