    Getting a gasoline odor coming into the interior of the car. Funny thing is
    that there is NO LEAK. Any guess'? Anybody else had this problem?

  2. Only when I over fill the tanks to win an economy run .The tanks hold about
    another 15 litres if you slowly bit by bit fill them shake the car ,wait and
    then fill them more .Maybe the pipe between the two tanks has a leak as it
    happened on my wifes car and mine .

  3. Two things come to mind - the filler neck for the tank may have
    disconnected, or you may have an undetected injector leak. For the injector,
    look closely at each injector - especially where the plastic bonds to the
    metal - just after shutting the engine down. For the filler neck, shining a
    strong light upward from under the car where the filler is and looking
    inside the filler neck for light is a good place to start.
