Not strictly the gas cap...mechanic cannot diagnose the problem. I am the original owner, vehicle has 100 K in excellent condition except for this and the air conditioning also just went out (mechanic doesn't want to fix this either)..Denver area. Help

    Take it to a new mechanic? If you are taking it to a VW service shop (dealership), I will tell you they are really lousy to deal with. I'm sure someone will take your money in exchange for fixing the issue. The gas odor could be a charcoal canister issue or a purge line gone bad. The A/C I'm sure you can find a tech who will fix it without issue. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 May 9 '16 at 15:27
