Gas smell but not any leaks - Expedition Ford Cars & Trucks

Answers :

Depending on the Year of Expedition there was a recall for Gas tank straps. Those units having shields for the Off-road package kept the gas tanks from falling off the vehicle. For units without the shields, the tank could hang from the remaining strap which would put all the pressure on the remaining strap.
The repair for the strap is free under Warranty.
There are other parts which may fail. The main line to the fuel pump can rust. Any metal component up to the fuel injectors can likewise fail.
There is also a system for the Emissions and the vapors can leak if the hoses have pin holes. A device called a "smoke test machine" is needed to detect these leaks. This is a possibility since you see no fuel puddles under your vehicle.
A tiny fuel leak can seep and evaporate while the vehicle is in motion.
I would call in the vehicle VIN# and see if your particular unit has been recalled for the straps. An inspection under the vehicle would be useful. After that, do a "smoke test".
