@JaneyJane:  I’ve never heard of that, but I would definitely contact my landlord or main office to find out!  It’s always better to be safe than sorry!

@JaneyJane:  I would call the city’s utility office. Someone may have poured some kind of solvent down the drain.

It’s probably naval jelly or a similar petroleum-based lubricant that you’re seeing, and not actual gasoline. Any of those metallic joints and such need to be lubricated every so often, even more so if the weather is especially wet and cold, and most of those industrial lubricants are petroleum-based, so they stink like gas. It’s usually a really thin film applied that looks wet, and might even feel wet like a liquid rather than a jelly.
