fuel vapor on warm days .......

Thanks for the tip.  I need to find this tube and see if that's where my
fuel smell is coming from.  I've had the S-car for 2-1/2 years, and I often
smell gas when I park, usually on a hot day.  I also pick it up sometimes in
the cabin when stopped in traffic on a hot day.  (I've rehearsed a fast
evacuation plan in my mind a number of times).   I can't count how many
times I've stuck my nose under the hood or under the car in the garage and
in parking lots trying to find a leak.  The only thing I'm confident of is
that the smell isn't originating under the hood.  I usually get the biggest
noseful from the right rear wheel well.  With all the searching, I have
never been able to find the slightest trace of liquid gas anywhere near the
fuel lines or the mountings.
