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?

|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.|
