I spilled gasoline in the trunk of my car. I solved the odor problem by laying newspaper over the carpet where it was spilled. The paper absorbed the odor and there was no stain to even see where it was spilled. The problem was solved!

I spilled gas in my car about two weeks ago and used coffee; that didn't work. I also used Mr. Clean and washed the floor of my car. The kitty litter didn't work either, what else can I try?

I spilled gasoline on the center trunk carpet piece.

I removed just the piece of carpet that had gasoline on it.

I used 50% strength Sun laundry detergent on the spill.

I let the detergent sit on the carpet 8 hours before rinsing.

After 4 cleanings and sun drying the carpet is odor free.

I hope this helps.

I had a 2 gallon gas can unknowingly tip and spill contents in the back of our new Ford Van. 1st thing I did was PANIC. Then I soaked up all the gas that I could with rags and spread that green/piney smelly floor clean-up powder to absorb gas wetness in the carpet.

This turned the beige carpet green and my wife PANICKED. Vacuumed it up & scrubbed with Haggerty's Carpet cleaner, the green went. Bought a huge bag of kitty litter and covered the entire floor. Now we Pray and have a sleepless night. Any response or help would be appreciated. Thanks. Edgar from Canada

For the removal of petroleum odors I have used brake cleaner it will evaporate most petroleum based chemicals it gives off a bad odor that will pass in a very short time. It evaporates at very low temperatures but extremely good ventilation is a must. Spot test an area for color fast and degradation.

I loaded up a lawn mower on it's side thinking it was empty...wrong!!!

I put a disposable pampers diaper on it, opened up as wide as possible, absorbant side down, and put a heavy weight on it for a day. When I removed it, the diaper was full of the gas and the smell was gone! If yours is dry, you could re-wet it with water and the diaper will draw up the moisture-gas and all. Yours sounds like a much bigger spill than mine, so you would have to use many diapers, but it would be worth the cost of a bag of diapers to get rid of the smell!!! I guess you might have to repeat the process if it is really deep. I happened on this idea, because I always have extra diapers in my van, and it was the only absorbant material I had at the time!

Good Luck! Let me know if you try it, and if it works.

How do you remove gasoline smell from the trunk of a car?

Also, if you have not done the suggested, then check to see if you have an exhaust leak from the pipe or a gas leak from the tank. Either way could be dangerous for being poisoned.

Hi,

I saw this tip once for a lady who had spilled a gallon of milk in the trunk. She was told to buy a bag of charcoal briquettes for the grill (the kind without lighter fluid), lay the bag in the trunk and split it open on top side. She said that leaving that in there for a while absorbed all of the smell and totally got rid of it. Hope this works for gasoline too!

A gas can spilled over on my carpet in my Tracker. I have read about the coffee grounds. Is it just coffee from the can or dried out used coffee grounds? It is also 4 degrees out and I can't air it out much with freezing rain and snow. Brrrrr

Man it stinks and I have severe breathing problems as it is.
Thank you.

Try using kitty litter to soak up both the smell and any remaining liquid. Change it until smell is gone. Good luck.
