Diesel Smell


on the last few cold mornings i am getting a smell of diesel when stopped in traffic or at lights, once the car is warm and i presume the auto choke (if there's such a thing) shuts off it disappers.

Any idea's, i have checked the fuel filter and lines and cant see anything !!! Help

Have you had the top cover off the engine (the plastic bit?) and checked the injectors. not uncommon for them to leak apparently..
