    Ello All I have a fuel smell when I have driven and then come to a halt at the lights I cannot for the life of me see any leaks at all. more pronounced around the rear of the vehicle. But as per car running for over 30 mins and no leaks driving me mad. First thought it was the rubber pipes under the inlet but they don't smell any ideas ??

    Agree with Nige Robert, the filler necks do rot and need replacing from time to time.

    could be your petrol cap,does it tighten properly when you have filled up? i am having the same problem funny enough but i think its my fuel cap keeps coming loose as when i tighten it it clicks loads but then a few times i have checked it and it has been loose??
    or i read it could poss be a bad charcoal cannister..if you figure it out give me a shout lol or visa versa
