159 2.2 fuel smell

After the car idle for over 1 day, started the cold engine after several mins, very strong fuel smell coming out from engine compartment but after 15 mins it disappear and the rest of the day it has no smell at all. The alfa dealer said there is NO leak. What will be the possibilities .

It is easy in fact.
Open bonnet, strip spark plugs cover off.
There are a few different fuel pipes at the right side.
Start the car and shake all pipes a bit. Sure you would see reason - dedicated clamp ( or all ) is to be replased.
Be carefull. Exhaust is nearby. Engine is to be cold to do this.

Got it. It is in fact coming from one of the pipes. Due to some blockage and it creates pressure result fuel spray out of the pipe. But as when the engine is hot , no blockage no pressure so not easy to spot. Told the dealer to fix.
