Re: Espace 3 fuel tank & petrol smell / odour

You could use something like this as a patch repair;

As for the location of the fuel tank; any place has its pro's & con's, I suppose. Cars are designed to fare particularly well in certain crash test scenarios which influences design & engineering, so I guess, since its all a compromise, where you gain in one area, you may potentially lose in another.

This would be the best section to discuss your petrol tank.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
