If you have noticed the odor of gasoline around your vehicle when it is in the garage, you may want to check for a leak in your Nissan fuel tank. Your Nissan fuel tank is mounted in the undercarriage of your vehicle, below the trunk area. In this position, the Nissan fuel tank is quite vulnerable to the wear and tear caused by the elements, with the moisture and road salt splashed up from the road as you drive. Rocks and road debris can cause scratches and dents in your Nissan fuel tank. These factors can cause damage that leave an opening for corrosion to begin, capable of causing leaks in those areas over time. The areas of corrosion can eventually form little pinholes in the surface of the Nissan fuel tank, allowing fuel to seep out slowly. A slow leak of this type in the Nissan fuel tank may not be immediately apparent, as gasoline evaporates quickly and may not make it to the ground to form a puddle when leaking in such a small amount. However, the holes will become larger over time, and the leak faster. This can become a danger, especially if the fuel comes in contact with the hot exhaust pipe of your vehicle, creating the possibility of fire or explosion. Even if this danger is avoided, with the expense of fuel growing every day, certainly losing it to a leak is not an ideal situation.
