How is the car running?? Performace etc?
Have you changed your fuel supplier?
car seems to be running fine however petrol consumption has gone up a bit ive not changed fuel suppliers
When are you smelling this, while on the move or when stationary?
When was the last time you had a service?
could be a leak in the petrol tank??
i only smelt it this morning when it was idleing might just be because it was first thing this morning
if fuel consumption has gone up it is possibly the engine temp sensor. keep an eye on your fuel bills. My local audi garage explained the engine temp sensors can fail (only about £12 and they had ten in stock). This fools the ecu into thinking the car is colder than it actually is and drops a bit more fuel in, on a bit of choke as it were. eventually it will cause rough running, not sure what else
or it might be nothing
where are the engine temp sensors located ?
this is where it is on my 1.8t
hope this helps
