    Where can you smell the fumes? From within the car when it's running? Or outside of the car?

    Fumes will be dispersed whilst driving, so not unusual to notice a problem whilst idling at junctions. Maybe a fuel leak under the bonnet? Also the flexi-sction of the exhaust can split which when at a standstill can allow fumes up into the engine bay.
