    Aircon and petrol smell

    Hello all.

    I had my aircon on today whilst i was parked, after a while i started to smell petrol and when i looked underneath the car i could see something leaking. When i moved the car and looked at what it was it looked like water, it didnt have a smell or colour to it.

    Since then ive been gettin smells of petrol as im driving around. Anyone had this problem?

    petrol smell could be the petrol cap on not tight enough, of excess preasure coming ougt the fuel filler due to teh hot weather

    I found out the smell of fuel was because of the cap, it was tight when i filled up but had come loose.

    Cheers for the replies chaps, at least its nothing to worry about
