    Smell of fuel when using climate control - Intermittent problem

    Last night noticed the car smelt slightly of petrol when using the climate control. This has not happened before and didn't last long.

    Has anybody else experienced this?

    Any ideas what this could be?

    On another note, how easy is it to get your climate control reboosted (or what ever needs doing here to improve it).

    Thanks

    Shane

    I had the same until very recently... It was the valve cover gasket leaking and burning off which made it smell. New gasket and a little sealant and all is back to not smelling
