I would like to know besides having to shell money out of my own pocket, I bought this vehicle used from a Nissan Dealership and DID NOT LOOK at the gas cap to tell if there may be a problem with the gas cap not sealing and the check engine light coming on.

I can also smell gas vapors outside the car when I shut off the engine and get out.

Who pays for the NEW gas filler Nozzle?????

It had better NOT be me, I've only had the car a week, nice eh??
