    Astra in Canada!-Fuel smell in car.

    Well we bought a new 2008 Saturn Astra which is new here in Canada. So far we love the car, & certainly are learning more about it as we drive it. (had it 2 months now). We are, however disturbed by a fuel "whiff" we get in the car every so often. While driving, you get a 'whiff' of gas, which makes us light headed!. Certainly noticeable. Even the kids notice. We have had it at the dealer 2 times, & they claim they cannot find a thing. Im sure they are new at these cars as well, however this is a safety cocern. It does not seem to matter what the fuel level is at, or windows open or closed, fans on or off. We were hoping it might be a simple fix that maybe someone else has had. Please help..........
    Astra 5door XR model.
