Use air pressure. If the house has a higher air pressure than the
garage the fumes won't travel against the gradient. Possibly add an
exhaust fan/power vent in the garage to lower that air pressure.
Also consider the outside breezes -- Mother Nature blowing into your
garage will probably funnel into your house unless their is an easier
way to exit, such as a bigger/additional vent.
