Re: Petrol Smell Espace 1998 petrol

We had same problem. It was a crack in the plastic pipe on the fuel pump which sits inside the petrol tank. It broke off in my fingers when I removed it (had to lower fuel tank to do this). When I ordered a replacment (2nd hand) that too had a small crack on it so I covered it with strong glue. Carefully pushed the hose over it and smell stopped! Good luck.
