Petrol Smell?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I spilled petrol in the boot of my brand new blooming car! I removed the boot carpet and wiped up the petrol spillage....it has been around 4 days now and the smell is still really strong! I have tried leaving windows down etc....any suggestions? P.s boot carpet is still out the car

after 4 days would have expected the smell to be gone, especially with carpet removed and aired.

might find you have missed some of it somewhere...wherever it spilt, it may have run elsewhere...for instance, if the boot floor is flat, some may have run down and settled under rear seat/flooring

Let the car air as much as possible and remove the boot carpet for a couple of days to air in the garage, shed or somewhere out of possible rain.

The smell will eventually go once all the petrol evaporates.
