: I've had my car into the dealership a few times because of a strong gas smell which only seems to occur on hot days (above 80 degrees F). They said this was due to some filter but it was normal. For a sixty thousand dollar car (US), I find it hard to believe that this is "normal." Has anyone else had this problem?

I have a '98 540iA and have certainly not experienced any gasoline smell. Any dealership that would tell you that it is "normal" is sniffing gasoline in his/her spare time.
