A petrol station smells like it could be the location of a mystery animal.
The smell of petrol is a familiar sensation for motorists on the country’s west coast, but what’s happening on the coast is something else entirely.
In an area known as the ‘gas patch’ – where petrol stations are scattered across the country – many motorists are having trouble identifying the distinctive smell of gasoline.
As the news was being broadcast, I had a sudden thought.
This is the petrol station I want to see in the film, and I can smell it.
It was only a matter of time before the car I was watching in the trailer suddenly turned to petrol.
After a quick search of the surrounding area, I found a petrol station on a busy road on the NSW north coast.
I had to drive around the car park to get to the petrol pump, but it wasn’t too hard.
When I got to the pump, I was greeted with a strange smell.
“This is a petrol pump,” said the owner of the station.
He explained to me that he was in the process of selling a new car.
But the smell wasn’t the only thing I was smelling.
There was a little greenish, metallic smell that I can only describe as “a mixture of the oil and grease from a car engine”.
The fumes made me think I was going to be gasping when I opened the car door.
So, I went inside to take a closer look.
To my surprise, I could see that it was actually a petrol-powered car engine that was being serviced.
And it was not an old model.
What the petrol smells like is the same thing that many motorists say they can detect when driving along a country road.
A lot of the odours that motorists experience on their roads are generated by a mixture of petrol and diesel fumes.
One of the most common sources of odours in the country is a diesel engine.
Diesel engines are a common component of cars, and are used to power large amounts of fuel for large vehicles such as large trucks and buses.
They can produce fumes for many hours, with no visible signs of a problem.
However, they can also emit a number of chemicals including ethylene glycol, acetone, acetaldehyde and formaldehyde.
These are commonly found in petrol, diesel and kerosene and they are used in a wide variety of applications.
Gasoline is produced by an engine using a mixture containing a mixture called ethylene oxide and oxygen, but also hydrogen peroxide, which can react with other compounds.
That can create a mixture that has a smell similar to that of petrol.
The odours are produced when a petrol engine operates for more than 30 minutes at high speed, but can also be emitted after a short period of time.
Pour it on and you’ll feel the smell, but the fumes won’t linger on your breath.
Why does my petrol smell like it’s being used in an old car?
If you have a diesel car, you’ll likely find the odour produced by a diesel-powered engine is more prominent.
If a diesel fuel tank is sitting empty, the diesel engine can be the source of that smell.
It’s also common for diesel engines to produce fumes when an engine is idling for more that two hours.
During that time, the engine will be running at a high speed and the fumes will remain in the air for longer periods of time than they would if the engine was idling quietly.
Even though the odouring is produced, the gas tank is still full.
By contrast, the odoured petrol on the road will continue to emit its own fumes for up to 30 minutes after it has been stopped and the fuel has been turned off.
According to the National Gas Agency, if you’re travelling by car in the Northern Territory, you may not be able to detect the odors on the roads because of the dense fog that covers the area.
Despite the fog, the smell of gas still remains a common complaint for motorists in this region.
You can also smell petrol in the area if you take a look at the local petrol station.
