MG MGF Technical - Petrol Smell cured

Might be of interest but the petrol smell that I have been bothered by has been cured by a different route to those suggested in the archives/previous threads. The garage managed to track down that the commonest problem was the petrol tank/fuel pump seal. It has been replaced and the petrol smell is no more. Very cheap job too.



I have noticed that I get a wiff of petrol in the car just after using the . If the car is left a day or more without driving, the smell is not there (the initial smell has difused out of the cabin). Did you have the same?

David Lamas Loureiro

Yes, that was exactly the situation with our car. The petrol smell was worst after 15mins - 1/2 hr and went more or less over 24 hrs.
