So, removed o/side interior panel (after first purchasing set of star ended bits!) Found access 'hatch' to fuel pipe. Not much access at all, is there?! Anyway happened upon a rubber hose approx 16" long 0.25" diameter literally lying over the wheel arch and not conected at either end!!!
Can someone teli me where this should be connected and whether it may be the cause of the escaping petrol fumes, please?

Also, a colleague reckons that, as I purchased the car less than 30 days ago the dealer is obliged to put this problem right for me. Is there anyone out there in the know who can confirm or dispel this for me?

Many thanks,
