Default Spilled Gas

So this past weekend I was taking a trip to my parents house so I could paint the gas tank from my motorcycle. Well low and behold I didn't drain enough gas out, the tank rolled over and spilled gas in the trunk.

Do anyone have any remedy to this? The whole inside of my car reeks of gas, I can barely ride it, and I have to drive with the windows down. It'* been raining a lot so I can't just "air it out". I would appreciate any helpful hints or ideas. TIA

pull the carpet out of the trunk and power wash it remove the spare to make sure none ran down there and wipe down anything that had gas on it. the carpet is what is going to hold most of the smell so if it doesnt wash out you may have to run to the junkyard for replacements

Did the smell in the car eventually fade away?

well i spilled 5 quarts of oil so there wasnt smell but for the interior since gas wouldnt have come in contact with it just the fumes it should fade out if not there hasnt been one thing i havent been able to get the smell out of with this i use it everywhere even takes the odor out of my shoes so thats saying something lmao
but seriously my grand am came from my mom who has smoked in it for 10 years it was bad, neither of us can even tell now and she spilled an entire pot roast in the back seat once smelled horrible and nothing would get it out sprayed this on and smell was gone
