    A puzzling one .. anyone else had similar.?

    Hi there,

    Ive had what i believe is a fuel smell inside the car, it seems to come through the vents for the air con when its on.
    I tried having a look under the bonnet and I Think ive tracked down the smell to a small black box under the plastic next to the coolant tank. It looks like the fuel lines are in some kind of plastic box/manifold here. has anyone had issure with seals on these before ? common to leak ?
    Thanks.
