You have finally identified the fuel leak that had been a problem for several days but now you can’t eliminate the smell of gasoline that pollutes the interior of your Ford Fusion.
If you have not yet determined the origin of the fuel smell, we advise that you have a look at our article on the subject: “Ford Fusion smelling like gasoline”.
However, if you have identified it, we will describe how to solve it and bring back a healthy smell in your Ford Fusion.
Different steps to remove the smell in your Ford Fusion
First of all, if the fuel source is inside, you must discover it and absorb as much as possible. Make use of old cloths or mops that should be thrown away after handling as they will not be reusable.
For the remaining fuel that you are unable to absorb inside your Ford Fusion, use the help of the sun. Indeed, if you leave your vehicle in full sun for a few hours, some of it will evaporate.
Now, for the remaining part, you need to prepare a cleaning mixture.
We advise using carpet shampoo mixed with water. Prepare this in a bucket to come with a homogeneous mixture. It will be efficient for your Ford Fusion. Apply vigorously with a cloth or the green side of a sponge. You will also have to throw away what you make use of here.
Another useful mixture is a mixture between a third of water, vinegar and finally baking soda. Also very effective in eliminating odours in your Ford Fusion.
Rub vigorously for a few minutes. Then, you must dry as much of the location as possible by absorbing with different cloths. The sun will complete the end of the work.
Now that the stain is cleaned out, here are some strategies to permanently clear away the smell in your Ford Fusion.
First reflex, an anti-odour spray, special for cars. Be careful, however, if you have leather or other coating in your car. Take something suitable.
Alternatively, you can employ baking soda, which will absorb these annoying odours of your Ford Fusion. Sprinkle the area and let it work for a few hours. Repeat the operation for several days for an ideal effect.
Another very effective product that we don’t necessarily think about is cat litter. Indeed, this is basically intended to keep and absorb the odours of cats that are strong. So it also succeeds very well for your Ford Fusion. It is recommended to let it work a little longer than baking soda (a full day would be very effective).
Finally, we advise that you use ground coffee in the spot in question, it also has very good odour absorbing effects.
Here are the different tips you can practice to find a clean and odourless interior.
