    So i have a 97 eclipse gst that is running horribly rich. If i yake a drive down the street and back i will lose a decent amount of gas..the only i have done to the car is a 1g bov and changed the fuel pressure regulator.also while driving it smells like gas in the cabin.Any help please.

    Sounds like a fuel leak. Is the FPR working properly? Did you set the base pressure?

    You changed the fp to what replaced the stock one, shouldn't be rich, to changing that loosing gas I would look for a gas leak.

    Does the car spudder or anything like that? If the car is throwing black smoke then you're definitely running rich, but you're smelling a strong odor of gasoline then there might be a gas leak...
