Drove it. Last week was just down right nasty in Central NY, so I drove our AWD Rogue. Today was decent enough to drive the PT. Tomorrow might not be. The PT is really good in snow, but why chance it.

Drove mine after charging the battery up for 24 hours, a weekend of sitting with below zero weather was not good and short trips of ~3 to 4 miles the last few months does not do a good job of keeping the battery topped up.

I will hit 100,000 miles on it on the drive today - currently at 99,997 miles.

Drove it and after 20mins started to smell gasoline in the car. Opened the hood and could smell some gasoline on the passenger side of the car for a couple of minutes after turning the engine off.

Is this a typical issue on the PT and what would be the cause?

check the fuel line on the passenger side of the engine. It can rub and get a hole in it.
It is the small hose that is kind of in mid air coming from the firewall area towards the front of the engine over the power steering reservoir.

Thanks I did yesterday and it smelled with gasoline near the intake to the engine. Turned on the ignition and had a nice jet of gasoline spraying when pressure was built up which surprised me since it was so big and nothing in the near that could cause such a "big hole". Put a gasoline hose over it with 2 hose clamps which seem tight for the moment but I'll need a new hose.
Does anybody know the oem number for the hose so i can order it?

If you are referring to the line that runs from the firewall to the fuel rail,
P/N 05085555AC on 2nd gen PT.

note: this line fits my 2nd generation 2008 PT,
1st generation may have different part number

Thanks and you're right, seems there was one line up to 2003 and then they changed it to the one you're referring to.
