    A bit alarmed after refueling following a fairly spirited drive today, the car (916 spider 2.0 TS) was turned off and I came back from paying for the fuel to find smoke pouring out from under the bonnet. I pulled the battery, checked under the bonnet and found most of it seemed to be coming from...
