this is a recent thing Ive started to notice, if Im driving, and come to a light and downshift. when I stop I can smell fuel. have checked all the lines, injectors, even pulled plugs and cant find the source. only smell it on engine braking stops.

Have you pulled the vacuum line off the FPR to see if the diaphragm is leaking?
no, but I did check it last night for leaks. like 2 years or so ago, I popped the hood because I was smelling fuel and noticed the line wasn't there..... Ill double check it a little later when it cools down outside, maybe replace it.

does your fuel millage hurt? Ive also noticed my gauge moves more than it has before. usually I can fill up, beat the car for 2-3 weeks and then itd be time to fill up again

Yeah but just yesterday I wired up the vts and vtp sensor and got rid of all my cels so I'll see how it gets. Does yours smell like unburned fuel in the exhaust or just raw fuel?

does your car cut fuel on decel? if not, you probably have a minor exhaust leak and smelling unburnt fuel

want to say it smells unburnt. theres a hint of it there. that's why I pulled the plugs to see if I had a dead cylinder. Ill have to check my cels again. I know for sure the iacv is throwing a code. haven't checked it recently, but Ill do it tomorrow

FWIW, I have a open EVAP line hanging off the firewall and I don't smell fuel at any point. My windows are always open as well since I have a det can tube running through the window and it's been 95 degrees + outside...
