hi there,


i have a 74 super beetle convertible. the gas smell inside is drivin me crazy. i think it's origin it that plastic part right behind the dash. there are many small gas lines and tubes.


my question is. can i remove that part and just plug the hole in the filler tube. what does this thing do anyway. if it is only for emission control, i don't care. as long as the gas mileage does not increase.


any help or suggestions...

If you use the search function in the forum you will find lots of info on the gas smell in the Beetle. There is a fix for it that involves the re-routing of some of the lines and the elimination of the charcoal filter.
