high on petrol

There is a petrol smell inside the car. Last owner replaced fuel filter which I believe is under rear seats? Do you think it could be leaking?

Fuel filter is underneath car by offside rear wheel. Could well be leaking as the pipes and unions corrode because of where it is.

Sorry I told you wrong, it's actually a "GAP in tank fuel pump" that was replaced by the last owner In Dec 14 (did himself I think).

Also check the hose going to the front bank fuel rail. It can spring a pinhole leak. Known issue and a fire hazard.

Mine stank of petrol when I had this issue.
