    The smell out back is not burnt fuel its unburnt fuel......and i take it that the smoke that you are seing out back is a greyish/white colour.......DIPS A4 how long ago did you have to timing belt changed!!!

    The white/gray smoke indicates your timing is slightly retarded.......but the best way to go would be to have the hose sorted first.
