    Help smell of petrol

    I am getting petrol fumes in the cabin when I accelerate, especially up a hill. It has got to the point where I have to open the windows as it is that strong.

    I have checked the petrol cap to ensure it is on properly and it is. Any ideas what could cause this? I was thinking exhaust maybe?

    Sounds like a leak.

    Have you checked in the engine bay?

    No where abouts should I be looking?

    At the fuel pipes.

    What engine do you have.

    If it smells that bad I am sure you would see it leaking with the engine running.

    ive been in a mk3 gsi and smelt fuel inside the cabin -cause was from the injector rail - may be worth starting there and then progressing onwards
