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!

I can't answer that question but I would like to add a word of caution. Never place a container of gas in your trunk even if it is only a gallon for the lawn mower. Fumes can collect and catch fire. Gas always needs to be in a ventilated area.

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.
