Re: Weird! "Brand New" motor kit smells like gas!
That's great they tested their product, but the vendor should have jumped on the opportunity to show that they care about their customers initial impression and include a note that says the motor was bench tested. It looks super professional and prevents misunderstandings and hard feelings just like this.
It's a good thing the gas fumes didn't catch the UPS guy's nose though! A package that smells of gas is not something they appreciate, and I'm sure it is in violation of some federal laws...
