    Horse poo. You shouldn't be able to smell petrol mate! I take it yours is the Direct with it being a 55 plate. Can you get under the car and follow the fuel lines? Might be worth a check.

    No normal at all the petrol smell IMO....is like saying that if you stand near a person you`ll smell blood or something... I guess you`ll have to try a different dealer...might be unsafe to have a petrol smelling engine
