Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Can breathing in gasoline fumes get you sick?

Yes

Flatulence_
Volatile fumes from gasoline, glue, paint, etc..., are bad because they diffuse throughout the body after inhalation. The fumes one smells at a gas station are diluted by the air, so don't cause illness. If one purposely sniffs gasoline or glue, or accidentally gets too much fumes while painting inside a closet, he can get damage to the lungs, brain, etc..., especially with repeated exposures.

My dad has a gasoline leak in his car (8 months) drives 2hr/day in strong fumes. Becoming "confused", doesn't process information well-should I worry?

Fumes and confusion

Mental_confusion
You should take your Dad to a neurologist. I assume that if you are 63, he must be in his 80's. There may be other causes of his confusion other than his driving in his car, that leaks gas. Have him see a neurologist to rule out more common causes of confusion other than gas fume inhalation. Good luck.
