In Reply to: Fuel smell - scary posted by Brett on May 18, 2001 at 11:21:24:

So I popped my rear seats and looked at both Fuel and Sending Units. To my luck I found a little crack on top of the sending unit.
95 AvusBlua//M3

Last night i filled up my tank right before i came home (gas station is only 2 blocks away).. chevron 92 like always.

This morning I open my garage and when I walk in I smell a pretty strong smell of fuel.. i checked underneith the car and didnt see any puddle on the ground or anything (but i know that gasoline evaporates quickly).. i got in the car and the smell wasnt quite as bad.

i'm going to pull the back seat out and see if that fuel pump seal is maybe leaking..

any other ideas? i was scared to start the car, but i did and drove 20 miles to work just fine..
