Re: Espace 3 fuel tank & petrol smell / odour

Had my first chance to get my head under the car today. Wow! If I am looking at this right, there is a big jubilee clip and connection well below the fill level of the tank. Very easy to get off - maybe easy to knock off too!

I'm surprised, or maybe I shouldn't be, are all cars like this? I'd design a fuel tank so that all orifices are above the max fill level of the tank, for obvious reasons!

OK, so that part of my Q is dealt with... if you could post a piccie of what the tank looks like on top, that'd be great.
