Since a month my A140 has a weird problem.
When I drive for about 10km or so and I stop driving, a gasoline smell
get's into the car. It disappears when I drive further and after about
40km it is all gone.
Sometimes it occurs when the engine is cold, sometimes when it's warm. And
it doesn't appear always!
My garage mechanics have searched it extensively and don't have a clue
about what can be wrong. They investigated all gasoline lines, they
looked at the injector, ... nothing found.
Me and my dad searched the engine for leaks with a meter, but didn't find
So it's a big mystery where the smell comes from. It is certainly a pure
gasoline smell, not hot oil or exhaust gasses.
Anybody an idea?

One of the first on the market, so not quite 'mainstream constructed'
(even my garage holder finds things he has never seen in other A classes).
