Lately I've had a very strong smell of gasoline whenever the V is on. I've pulled the sidecovers and stuck my face in there to no avail. Anyone else had this issue?

Yea I've smelled gas from time to time. I have assumed it is vappor from the expansion of gas during the warm weather.

Same here, and it doesn't have to be warm weather. I also occasionally hear a high pitch whine from the tank while parked. It all has to do with the vapor leaking out of the filler. It's a feature, is it not? :D

I know this is an old thread, but thought I would jump in here. This past week we had several days over 100 degrees and my V has developed this smell. I assume it is just from fuel expansion but if anyone has any other ideas, please let me know.

It is normal, it is the gas venting due to expansion. Don't worry about it.
Just DON'T (ahem) fire-up a smoke.... :forgetit:

Yes Steve08, I had the same problem with me, but I have read this all of the stuff and I finally got the little idea that what should I do. Now hopefully I will be solve my problem.
