There is a gasoline smell when driving vehicle. Took vehicle to mechanic and they stated that fuel injection line had two pin holes in it, and raw gas was spraying over left front of engine. Consumer felt car could catch on fire. The consumer stated that after repair, gas was smelled again. At this time took to the dealer and they found fuel rail was leaking in a different place and replaced it.
