    petrol smell with air con!!

    When i have the air con on i get this slight smell of petrol and it gives me a banging headache if i leave it on too long, i dont tho as i dont wanna pass out and die!!!!

    Anyway, it only happens when the air cons on and while im moving. Any ideas where to look for the problem?

    thanks

    The filter...

    just as you have purchased, i think its the filter. As i said before it just a guess. But it would make sense logically thinking that the filter was knackered...Any joy with it then?

    not sure if it is same as a6 but there is an evap system that regularly lets fuel tank gas into the inlet manifold. to be through the air con you can narrow it down to that inlet. you need a manual to check it out properly.
    just a little a6
