    My 2000 stepside has 130,000 well maintained miles. For a couple of years, when I change the oil I can smell gasoline in it. I have no engine codes, it gets 28 mpg, and runs like a scared mouse!

    Ther are no unusual mechanical noises and no starting problems from 0 to 90 + degrees. Even the dealer has no ideas. Anyone have any thoughts?
