    smell of fuel

    Hi People,

    Just brought a vauxhall astra MK5 1.8i 16v and it has a really bad smell of fuel, took it to vx and they could not find anything wrong, have just looked under the car and cannot find fuel filter!!! any ideas of where the smell is coming from or should there be a filter fitted?
