I WOULD JUST LIKE TO ADD AN ATTACHMENT FOR ALL TO READ; (MSDS)Nissan wrote in their system that they did not smell any leak while it was there. I do not know how long they even looked into it because they said it was already a problem and Nissan is working on it. The smell is not every day, and it goes away after a little while. So it would be easy for Nissan to keep denying they smell anything when I take the car in. I'm guessing when they told you it is under engineering review that they just recommended to continue driving your rogue while you are breathing in gas fumes and they said that breathing in gas fumes is no safety risk? I guess I'm still concerned and confused how they can say the smelling of gas fumes is no safety problem that they know of and was wondering if that is what they are telling everyone.
BOTH NISSAN AND CUSTOMERS WITH THIS PROBLEM!!
GASOLINE IS RATED AS A CARCINOGEN EVEN IF YOU BREATHE THE FUMES FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME. I AM A CHEMIST AND THE MSDS (safety data sheets) CLEARLY STATES THE PROPERTIES OF GASOLINE AND WARN THAT IT CONTAINS MANY CARCINOGENS, NOT JUST ONE! IF NISSAN IS TELLING YOU IT IS SAFE TO BREATHE GASOLINE, THEY ARE GROSSLY MISINFORMED OR LYING TO US ALL!
This is an excerpt from an MSDS regarding this fact;
"Excessive exposure may cause irritations to the nose, throat, lungs and respiratory tract. Central nervous system (brain) effects may include headache, dizziness, loss of balance and coordination, unconsciousness, coma, respiratory failure, and death."
I have already suffered a situation where half spent fuel fumes flooded the cabin from which I suffered dizziness, loss of coordination and nausea, almost losing consciousness and burning of my nose, eyes and throat. This was one of many incidents that we have experienced. Several times lasting over an hour while traveling. Being told each time they could find nothing wrong!
