Re: fuel econony

changed the exhaust last week and it runs nice however i every time i parked up and got out i could smell petrol realy bad,turns out there is a hole in the fuel filler over flow pipe,totaly corroded was wondering why when the tank was empty and i removed gas cap there was no sound of escaping air like my last scooby,can this affect mpg,obviously a safety issue is it an easy fix plus will any model year scooby estate filler pipe fit or will it have to be for a classic plus anyone got one or know where i can get one cheers
