je ne sens pas le gaz

Can anyone help me with this phrase? A man is comforting his female colleague who is upset after receiving some bad news. He hugs her and starts to kiss her neck, at which point she pulls away and says "Ça va pas?" He replies, "C'est bon, je ne sens pas le gaz non plus." Any idea what he means?

    yes, this is a slang set expression : "je ne sens pas le gaz" (gaz stinks!)
    in the same line, you have : "je sens le pâté, peut-être ?" (this time in the affirmative) :=)
