You have finally determined 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 Nissan Titan.
If you have not quite determined the origin of the fuel smell, we advise that you have a look at our article on the subject: “Nissan Titan smelling like gasoline”.
In the case you have identified it, we will describe how to solve it and restore a healthy smell in your Nissan Titan.
Different steps to remove the smell in your Nissan Titan
First of all, if the fuel source is inside, you must find it and absorb as much as possible. Use old cloths or mops that should be discarded after handling as they will not be reusable.
For the remaining fuel that you are unable to absorb inside your Nissan Titan, use the support of the sun. Indeed, if you leave your vehicle in full sun for a few hours, some of it will disappear.
Now, for the remaining part, you must prepare a refreshing mixture.
We advise using carpet shampoo mixed with water. Prepare this in a bucket to have a homogeneous mixture. It will be efficient for your Nissan Titan. Rub vigorously with a cloth or the green side of a sponge. You will also have to throw away what you work with here.
Another useful mixture is a mixture between a third of water, vinegar and finally baking soda. Also very powerful in eliminating odours in your Nissan Titan.
Rub vigorously for a few minutes. Then, you must dry as much of the area as possible by absorbing with different cloths. The sun will do the end of the work.
Now that the stain is wiped clean, here are some tips to permanently do away with the smell in your Nissan Titan.
First reflex, an anti-odour spray, special for cars. Be careful, however, if you have leather or other coating in your car. Take something appropriate.
Alternatively, you can employ baking soda, which will absorb these unpleasant odours of your Nissan Titan. 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 always think about is cat litter. Indeed, this is basically meant to retain and absorb the odours of cats that are strong. So it also will work very well for your Nissan Titan. 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 apply to find a clean and odourless interior.
