I just picked up my 2019 QX50 yesterday morning and over these two days, every time I go into the garage, there is a very noticeable fuel smell. Of course, looking under the car or in the engine bay, there is nothing to see. Anyone out there with the same problem ? Of course, it won't be noticeable if you do not have a garage to contain the odor. Thanks in advance !

In searching a few other forums, I found a Technical Service bulletin on a line from the venting system for the fuel delivery that has a potential bad "o" ring that may need replacing. The bulletin addressed this issue exactly.....having a strong fuel odor in the garage after shutting down the car.

I am in serious discussions with infinity legal trying to get reimbursed from them. They are denying that ur exists but as you know it is real. I have a lung condition and it made me sicker their response is evasive. Please give me a call Ralph 949 278 9669

ANYONE WITH THIS PROBLEM - Please reach out to me if your car is experiencing these kinds of odors.
The parts that they say can fix this (but it doesn't) are out of stock all over the country so it must be a serious problem.
Infiniti is NOT standing behind it's products so we should make them pay for their manufacturing error.
BTW, I gave mine back to them, if your Infiniti is black, maybe you got mine :rolleyes: (The dealer did say they were only going to wholesale it since the odor was so present)

Good morning Ralph ( and others ) ! My name is Allan and I am in London, Ontario Canada. ( between Detroit and Toronto ) I have had my QX50 now for approx. 3 weeks. I drive it daily and it is always in the garage. I would say that the fuel odor is there about 40% of the time. My wife hates all these fuel or chemical type of smells and when I first noticed it, I put her nose to work ! I called her out to the garage, and she noticed it immediately !! Obviously, you know about the TSB ( technical service bulletins ) on this issue and the repair process. I have always thought about recalls this way. If you have not modified the defective part, then are you not just installing a " new " defective part ?? So as you say, when they replace the o ring or whatever they replace on this fuel line, wouldn't it be with another bad part and does not resolve the issue. I am surprised that Infiniti ( being the high end of Nissan ) would not be anxious to keep the customer satisfied. This would be in the old days on how customers were treated depending if you bought a Chevy or a Cadillac !! I am sorry for all your trouble Ralph. Having your number, I will text you. Allan.

Look forward connecting with you. BTW my wife is the same as yours, she refused to even ride in the car because of the odor although I am the one with lung issues.
I am also a former Canadian but now in Vegas.

Any one else out there with the same issue, please let me know, I have a direct contact with their legal department.
