I know this is known issue but I hate that smell... It gives me a headache.

I even got it the other day in traffic. I realize it's the exhaust heating the gas tank, and then it vents to the wheel well (aka trunk).

Was there ever an improvement / recall / fix for this? One of my friends suggested heat wrap on my exhaust...

Also wondering if I'm overheating the exhaust because I still have the stock downpipes.... current setup is stock DP with Boostogic MP + 4" exhaust... At the track - exhaust got so hot it blued the outer tips completely...

The only recall that I've heard of was for the early 2009/10 models that had bad fuel smell and gas that would come out the filler spout. Interesting that you are getting fuel smell even with OEM DPs.

Yeah it's a 2013. Only lightly modded (almost FBO, but no DPs)

It only happens when it's hot outside or on the track...

damn,

 

no recall that we know of.  I did file a complaint to the NHTSA so will see what happens on that front.

 

Jared at SFS is also getting a JDM canister to see if its any different.

Mine had the EVAP purge valve DTC and "check engine light" after my first track event.  Fixed, but didn't seem to fix anything in the long run.

I get this gas smell on track with my 13 also nearly every track event and typically with less than half tank full of gas and worse when hot outside.

My local mechanic (amazing guy) rerouted the tubes to vent elsewhere than near / into the trunk. Smell is much better.

Did you run 3/4 tank? Check your wheel well liner?

Supposedly, Nissan is paying some owners for possession of the the car for emissions tests.  I think one of the owners on this board was approached.
