156 1.8 TS Veloce fuel smell
As the title suggests, I have a 2003 (pre facelift) 156 1.8 Twin Spark.
I noticed it smelt of fuel near the rear end (outside) not long after I bought it but thought it to be a general trait of the car.
However, I could be more paranoid, but there does appear to be a smell of fuel when going along sometimes. There is nothing leaking in the engine bay and nothing dripping from the fuel pipes or tank underneath (unless I've missed something).
The car runs, pulls and drives like a dream.
Any suggestions or ideas appreciated.
