    Do you run a stock fuel system?

    Just check the hoses to the rail and back to the tank. one could just be lose. you will get a slight smell if all fitted , but if your saying a big smell , check your line connectors.

    They are just simple connector plugs. black with green tips if that helps.

    Happens on all mine too, especially when we get hot weather after being cool for for a few days. Pressure builds & gets vented into the hull. Mine are stored inside, so I usually leave the seats cracked open to help them ventilate better. Still a good idea to check what Richie recommended though.

    Could it be a bad batch of fuel? Does this always happen Hallis regardless of where you get your fuel from??
