Re: smells

Seriously though, sounds to me as if you have a petrol leak somewhere. If it were me i'd be getting it checked out to be on the safe side.

Re: smells

Was about to say the same as the Pilot check the in and out feed from the fuel filter hoses make sure they tight and hose clamps perfect, run engine and see if any leaks check fuel rails, and all fuel hoses round engine
