You have finally identified the fuel leak that had been difficulty for several days but now you can’t get rid of the smell of gasoline that pollutes the interior of your Vauxkhall Moka.
If you have not yet discovered the origin of the fuel smell, we advise that you have a look at our article on the subject: “Vauxkhall Moka smelling like gasoline”.
If you have identified it, we will describe how to solve it and restore a healthy smell in your Vauxkhall Moka.
Different steps to remove the smell in your Vauxkhall Moka
First of all, if the fuel source is inside, you must identify 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 cannot absorb inside your Vauxkhall Moka, use the help of the sun. Actually, if you keep 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 Vauxkhall Moka. Apply vigorously with a cloth or the green side of a sponge. You will also have to throw away what you make use of here.
Another useful mixture is a mixture between a third of water, vinegar and finally baking soda. Also very effective in getting rid of odours in your Vauxkhall Moka.
Rub vigorously for a few minutes. Then, you must dry as much of the spot as possible by absorbing with different cloths. The sun will do the end of the work.
Now that the stain is cleaned, here are some strategies to permanently clear away the smell in your Vauxkhall Moka.
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 employ baking soda, which will absorb these annoying odours of your Vauxkhall Moka. Sprinkle the area and let it work for a few hours. Repeat the operation for several days for an optimal effect.
Another very effective product that we don’t necessarily think about is cat litter. Actually, this is basically intended to keep and absorb the odours of cats that are long lasting. So it also succeeds very well for your Vauxkhall Moka. 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 good odour absorbing effects.
Here are the different tips you can apply to find a clean and odourless interior.
