    Fart out of the window you smely git!

    Is the car parked backed up against a wall/fence? Possible fumage
    leaking in from seals etc...

    Also check exhaust system, tightened centre section etc, not had
    the smell since (after fitting aftermarket system).

    As for the battery, I'm running a Vauxhall 'GO' battery, 70amp iirc, only
    paid £35-40 iirc, not had any issues with starting even after I left my
    interior light on over night!
