Fuel scent/aroma additives

Does anybody use these? I am working in the home garage and do not want to offend. If you run a big block in a connected garage you know what im talking about. If I use the summit grape product, will my house smell like grape bubble yum gum?

Why not use some PCV pipe to make an exhaust for it. Adapt it to the shop vac and put one out a window for an exhaust.
make a 2 into 1 for the dual exhaust , use the next size larger pipe than the exhaust, and adapt down to the shop vac size. As long as it sucks a good amount of shop air with the exhaust it shouldnt overheat anything.Just a thought, or just get a couple of the shop exhaust hoses
Even grape smellin Monoxides will kill you ya know.

I dont smell it, but the wife hates the smell of gas. Everytime is gas up the tractors or mowers, I am hearing about it from her. Silly thing is, I have been doing this around her for 40 years and its just lately that she complains...Does gas smell worse than it use to....or is she just getting sick of me?....

My roof has exhaust fans for summer heat in the attic space. Last fall I floored the garage attic. The Exhaust comes in the house now. Even with the exhaust hoses. No shop vac is hooked up.

I have an attached garage and don't have smells transfering to the inside of the house. Is your air handler for the HVAC system in the garage also? If so, you might need to reseal the ducts around the unit. It may be pulling in garage air and sending it inside, instead of recycling the inside air.
