Hello and welcome to the forum.

It sounds like you have a leak in the top of the tank somewhere.......are there any signs of a leak underneath the car at all?.Petrol will leave a stain as it leaks so it might be worth checking the sides of the tank too.It could also be a split in the filler neck or a split breather pipe.

By the way,thats an impressive list of Renaults you have there!
