Dear guys, have anyone here in this forum facing the same problem as mine?

during boosting, there's a fuel smell in the cabin. i try to seek some mechanic friend, and found nothing

leaks in the engine bay. weird but dangerous as it kept me feeling dizzy...

Pls advise anyone... TQ

I had the same experience before. Initially I asked my mechanic to check the fuel regulator, hose, injectors, at the end I still have the same problem. Few month later, I did overhauled the engine, and the problem gone. I guess the smell may come out from engine

i think ur rite.. since there's no leaking at engine bay.. if it was because of fuel to rich, the smell would have came out from exhaust.. correct me if i'm wrong..

in my case, everytime i turned a sharp corner i will smell fuel....checked the engine parts but unable to trace...
so 1 fine day when i was pumping petrol in shell, the bangla suddenly pointed below my car...i was like wtf? he told me to bend down,
i saw fuel leaking from the hose connecting to the tank.

got it change the next day after that no fuel smell.

I got the petrol smell when I start my engine in the morning or when the rev is high. At first I ignored it and later, it became stronger. When I pop up the hood, to my surprise the fuel regulator was leaking. It's like squirting out fuel, not dripping. So I tighten the clamp and problem resolved.

3 months later, same smell came out. I check the fuel regulator again, the bugger was again squirting fuel. So I removed everything and retighten again. Hope no more 3rd time!
