2021 GT500, I have noticed that I now have a strong gas smell in the garage after driving the GT500. Didn't happen when I first got it, but does now. Anyone else have this problem?

Moved your post here.

Haven’t had any issue like this. Get under the car and have a look.

You may want to pull it outside to be safe. The fumes are what ignites and if you have a typical set up, the pilot on your water heater or furnace will ruin your day. Like Goose said, I would take a peek to confirm a leak, but then pull her out and have towed to your dealer.

Is the weather changing? I notice mine has a fuel smell on occasion but I'm 99% sure it's coming out of the gas filler opening. It's most prevalent when the temps change - I stick my nose in the area of fuel door and can smell it. Had it happen with my truck, too.

With the wee gas tank, I overfilled mine on one of the early fill ups and smelled gas for while, but only a weak scent in the cabin. I had no smell when I opened he hood.

If you believe it is coming from the gas fill it may be the rubber gasket not fully sealing when cold. See if Ford offers a lockable plug for the fuel neck. That may seal it better.
