Strong petrol smell

I would check the seals around the feul feed on the inlet manifold .


also the drivers side of the tank , as the seal around the pump may have failed or the Antiroll bar may have broken and punctured the tank on either side .


Check inside the boot , remove the black cover in the rear dirvers side and check the vent pipes from the filler pipe and the seal on your filler cap .

According to Caterham we have been sent the wrong fuel filler neck for our petrol tank!


Currently the breather pipe is connected into the spigot on top of the tank instead of breathing to atmosphere. They have recommended disconnecting the breather pipe and fitting a valve to the end of it, and blocking off the spigot from the tank. Hopefully that should cure it.


Thanks for all your help and ideas
