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

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

No, normal driving, and at most stops

sounds like its running rich. Isnt this a new vehicle to you? Do you know/have any of the repair history?

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.
