Two turbos are
better than one

My initial reaction if you can smell fuel while driving would be an old/worn fuel hose in the engine bay, which would obviously need to be investigated as soon as possible. My 75 - back when it was my Dad's years ago - had a fuel leak when the hose from the fuel pump began rubbing on the chassis and wore through. Fast forward to now, the 75 has been off the road for 9 years and I'm fixing it up, and I found that the hose between the tank and the pump was seriously knackered, I could almost tear it in two by hand. I think there's also a cutout in the top of the tank in which sits the fuel level sender? (At a guess). I assume that will have a rubber gasket in it too which may have perished.
Long story short - I'd be checking over any rubber components in the fuel system.
