smoke like hell

I have alfa 156 T reg 1.8 1999, just wanted to ask if anyone knows about this problem.
Do you know why does it smoke and smell fuel? and it is using much more petrol than before, i asked and they told me it is to do with lamba sensor. i am not sure what's wrong. If anyone knows please let me know.
Thank you to all

Re: smoke like hell

If the Lambda sensor has gone it could be the ECU is casuing the car to run rich ie too much fuel, which is why you can smell it. You need to get is sorted as this can damage the catalytic convertor if left too long.

You don't say where you are but in the UK the sensor is around £80 and you can get it changed in around 1/2 hour.
