For those who don't have a car jacket, I like a product called Fresh Cab. It's a combination of herbal stuff in a little sack that smells great but mice hate it. It's available at Tractor Supply stores here. They last about a month before you need to change them. If you can't smell them anymore, change them.
I also put plastic sandwich bags with rubber bands over the tailpipe ends and the air cleaner snorkel. My garage is not mouse proof so I have to take extra precautions.

Who makes the best one on the market? Do you need a soft cover underneath or do they come with a soft lining underneath. Thanks Bob
I am looking for one for my 2017 anniversary issue Camaro

I just purchased the Car Jacket https://www.carbag.com/carjacket/ for my Chevelle.

I’m storing the car in my trailer. I removed the battery, laid desiccant bags in and around the car then put my car cover on it before zipping up the bag.

The other day I had to get in to the trunk. When I unzipped the bag, all I could smell was gas fumes. I contacted them and they said some people put air fresheners around the car otherwise they would refund my money if I wasn’t satisfied.

My take on this is the bag is very tight but I don’t like the idea of the fumes being in the bag making the car smell like a gas tank.

Any suggestions?

Kurt

After more discussion with my wife and friends, Iím reluctantly returning the bag. I really like the idea but I believe the fuel smell is due to the vent on top of the gas tank. Unless......someone has a better idea.

Post fuel smell...

We have used the bags for many years....with no fuel smell issues.

Perhaps I just didn't notice, but it certainly hasn't been pronounced. Maybe there is a way to vent the gas tank to the outside..?? the bags do provide quality protection for the cars...we typically remove the battery, use dehumidity bags and dryer sheets, cover with the cloth cover and zip it up.

good luck..

Good idea -- there has to be away to vent the fuel tank cap/system to the outside ... just changes in barometric pressure will cause the fuel system to vent ... TAZ
