[200q20v] Phewwwww

My car sat with the fuel tank access hole open for almost six weeks while I
waited for confirmation of parts needed to replace the dead fuel pump, and
then waited for delivery and finally waited for comfortable weather to
finish installing the new tiny pump.

So it reeked of fuel fumes.

Still does despite two 6- to 8-hour sessions of standing with all doors and
trunk lid open and being driven a couple hundred miles  the last three days
with two or three windows open several inches.  Smells OK after an
"airing", but if left closed up several hours, smells strongly of fuel
odors again.

Do I need to clean the leather to get rid of the stink?
