You have at last identified the fuel leak that had been a problem for several days but now you can’t eliminate the smell of gasoline that pollutes the interior of your Ford Kuga.
If you have not quite determined the origin of the fuel smell, we recommend that you check out our article on the subject: “Ford Kuga smelling like gasoline”.
If you have identified it, we will explain how to solve it and bring back a healthy smell in your Ford Kuga.
Different steps to remove the smell in your Ford Kuga
First of all, if the fuel source is inside, you must find it and absorb as much as possible. Make use of old cloths or mops that should be discarded after handling as they will not be reusable.
For the remaining fuel that you capable to absorb inside your Ford Kuga, use the support of the sun. Indeed, if you leave your vehicle in full sun for a few hours, some of it will evaporate.
Now, for the remaining part, you need to prepare a refreshing mixture.
We recommend using carpet shampoo mixed with water. Prepare this in a bucket to come with a homogeneous mixture. It will be efficient for your Ford Kuga. Apply vigorously with a cloth or the green side of a sponge. You will also have to throw away what you work with here.
Another usable mixture is a mixture between a third of water, vinegar and finally baking soda. Also very powerful in getting rid of odours in your Ford Kuga.
Rub vigorously for a few minutes. Then, you must dry out as much of the location as possible by absorbing with different cloths. The sun will do the end of the work.
Now that the stain is cleaned out, here are some tips to permanently remove the smell in your Ford Kuga.
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 use baking soda, which will absorb these unpleasant odours of your Ford Kuga. Sprinkle the area and let it work for a few hours. Repeat the operation for several days for an optimal effect.
Another very powerful product that we don’t often think about is cat litter. Indeed, this is basically intended to retain and absorb the odours of cats that are strong. So it also will work very well for your Ford Kuga. 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.
Here are the different tips you can practice to find a clean and odourless interior.
