You have finally identified the fuel leak that had been difficulty for several days but now you can’t eliminate the smell of gasoline that pollutes the interior of your Ford Mustang.
If you have not quite determined the origin of the fuel smell, we suggest that you have a look at our article on the subject: “Ford Mustang smelling like gasoline”.
In the case you have identified it, we will explain how to remedy it and restore a healthy smell in your Ford Mustang.
Different steps to remove the smell in your Ford Mustang
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 capable to absorb inside your Ford Mustang, use the support of the sun. Actually, if you keep your vehicle in full sun for a few hours, some of it will disappear.
Now, for the remaining part, you need to prepare a cleaning mixture.
We suggest using carpet shampoo mixed with water. Prepare this in a bucket to come with a homogeneous mixture. It will be efficient for your Ford Mustang. Rub vigorously with a cloth or the green side of a sponge. You will also need to throw away what you make use of here.
Another usable mixture is a mixture between a third of water, vinegar and finally baking soda. Also very powerful in eliminating odours in your Ford Mustang.
Rub vigorously for a few minutes. Then, you must dry as much of the spot as possible by absorbing with different cloths. The sun will do the end of the work.
Now that the stain is wiped clean, here are some tips to permanently clear away the smell in your Ford Mustang.
First reflex, an anti-odour spray, special for cars. Be careful, however, if you have leather or other coating in your car. Use something appropriate.
Alternatively, you can employ baking soda, which will absorb these unpleasant odours of your Ford Mustang. Sprinkle the area and let it work for a few hours. Repeat the operation for several days for an ideal effect.
Another very powerful product that we don’t often think about is cat litter. Actually, this is basically intended to keep and absorb the odours of cats that are long lasting. So it also will work very well for your Ford Mustang. 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 area in question, it also has very powerful odour absorbing effects.
