It goes without saying but I’ll say it anyway because there are a lot of nob heads out there. Petrol vapour is flammable and when it’s in a confined space, the petroleum gas can be explosive. Make sure you are in a well ventilated area, ideally with as little fuel in the tank as possible. Don’t use a naked flame and be careful about anything that can create a spark.

I Can Smell Fuel

There are 2 seals to check. 1st is the rubber seal around the fuel cap. These degrade. Secondly, there is a seal between the fuel tank and the fuel pump. This particular seal is now becoming a common failure point. You may only smell or see fuel when cornering hard to the right as the fuel moves up to the left where the fuel pump is. If the seal has failed, fuel can pour out the top of the tank and over to the left of the car.

Changing the seal and its part number is shown below.

Locating The Fuel Pump

Open the boot and lift the carpet up behind the soft top flap.
