Gas Smell 1994 2.3L

Hi,

I have been smelling gas from the inside of my 1994 Ford Ranger 2.3L. It has only been noticed recently, and after checking the hoses and gas cap I didn't find any problem. The smell is only experienced shortly after starting and when going over very bumpy roads. Does that help anyone to diagnose my problem? Have others of you had a gas smell and resolved the issue?

Thanks,
Ernie Young

Check the straps on the fuel tank... if it's dropping down / moving it can crack the lines coming out of the fuel pump on top of the tank. There's a ford recall for the straps. I had that problem on my 95
