Petrol Fumes entering the cabin WH(WK) Hemi

Hi, after a run on a hot day (30deg.c) and come to a halt at the stop sign, etc there is a strong smell of petrol fumes entering the cabin via the a/c. I imagine it being sucked in from the engine bay; however I have been unable to source where it is comming from. There does not appear to be any indication on leaking around the injector rail area - or around the Tank Relief Solenoid within the engine bay.
Has anybody experienced this, and had success in finding the source?
Thanks, Jim

Re: Petrol Fumes entering the cabin WH(WK) Hemi

could be some exhaust gas? Were you doing some spirited driving and come to a sudden stop?

No, I've done 40,000 klms with this truck; It is more pronounced on a hot day - like when there is pressure in the gas tank...

I had gas fumes coming in throught the hvac and it turned out to ba a small fuel leak. They replaced the fuel / brake line bundle, part number 52124116-AB. The smell was gone by the next day.
