Try a putty knife. First there has to be vapors to ignite and then a spark to ignite the vapors. I highly doubt if there are any more vapors, just smells.

It's been more than a week, and the smell has dissipated A LOT. It's not nearly as bad as it once was. Keeping the trunk open in a heated garage at night considering it gets down to 30 degrees outside. I'm going to continue to air it out for a couple more weeks maybe longer and see what happens.

It's been months and I think the smell is finally gone. Occasionally on a REALLY HOT day a slight odor might be present but I haven't smelled anything in quite some time. Lesson learned. I have since purachsed non spill gas cans that can't open. They NOW come with safeties. My older can I used had no such feature back in 1987. Foolish I am, I know.

Just saw this thread antman did u try scraping off the pad on the bottom of the trunk? You can replace it with dynamat. The pretty much all it is. I didn't read the whole tread for the carpet did you try dawn dish detergent? Or rubbing alcohol with water it will be a strong smell but it cuts the gas smell. Try old spice body wash and mix some alcohol in it

I did not scrape the pad on the bottom of the trunk. Over time (months) the smell went away. Of course, days after it dried I cleaned it using.
Baking Soda
weeks later white vinegar
weeks later Dawn soap

Not sure which (if any) worked, because it still stunk but SLOWLY went away.

Time will cure anything from a smelly trunk to a broken toe.
