    fuel smell when turning car off on sri t?

    I have no fuel leaks and when i fill up the pump clicks all the time as if its full but it isnt so im guessin this is a tank vent issue but where do i start, is this common?

    you may have a blockage or breakdown in the charcoal canister, i had to do one of these on mine for a similar reason a couple of years back. This can be found underneath the plastic wing guard on the drivers side. i replaced this canister and the pipe to and from it and i could then fill up in 2 mins rather than the 10 minute ordeal i used to have

    can't remember what i paid mate, but it wasn't too much and worth it anyway to get rid of the smell and the embarrasing fill ups at the petrol station
