    My wife had the same problem on her Xsara Picasso,the garage could not find it but i did !!!!!!!

    On the filler tube behind the wheel liner is a vacuum pressure tube/valve,this had snapped of at the very top hence the smell of petrol...

    The solution....£138 for a complete assembly or cut back the tube and reglue with superglue...Problem fixed and that was around 5 mounts ago.

    It could be something very similar...
