#111 of 113 Re: Strong Gas Odor Coming From 2009 TCH [sarag]
Sep 22, 2009 (9:19 am)
I have had the same problems with my 2009 TCH.
First, I had the strong gas smell (and this was outside in the driveway!) and a small amount of gas on the driveway behind the left rear tire. Brought it in to the dealer, and they could not find anything wrong. The check engine light did not come on this time.
Then several weeks later the check engine light came on. The gas cap seemed loose, so we were sure that was the problem. We drove the car quite a bit and had several fill-ups before having the light reset during the next regular service. They confirmed it was a loose gas cap that caused the light to come on.
Yesterday the light came on again, and again the gas cap seemed like it was not tightened properly. We have been hyper vigilant about paying attention to the clicking sound when filling up ever since the first incident with the gas that leaked out, and we never top off the tank. Not to mention we have both been successfully tightening gas caps on various cars for quite a few years now!
I am annoyed at having to go into the dealer again to have them reset the light and tell me they don't find any problems. I hope Toyota will acknowledge that there is an issue here and figure out how to fix it. I'd be interested in hearing whether a new gas cap fixes this problem for anyone.

These are troll posts.
I'm watching a lot of TCH forums, and there are a lot of "new" posters with only 1 or 2 posts in the forums posting a lot of nasty things about TCHs.
I think someone is conducting an organized smear campaign.
You can ignore these posts.

You don't buy it... why? You sell Toyota Camry's or make them? These are legitimate gripes about the issues associated with Camry Hybrids. You really think people are making up this stuff? Come on dude...you got answers post them, you got opinions, tell your wife...Oh, you probably already wore out that option...now we get to hear your opinions...bummer!
