    I honestly have no idea why it would only start to smell when it was half to full.

    does it only do it when the motor is off or when it is on or both?

    is mainly when the car is started and in motion. when swished off the smell starts to go away, except for the internal smell. (Gabon)

    then it could be coming from a fuel injector. you could check and make sure that they are seated properly or they may need to be replaced

    Ok, could check that. The hole metal shaft. and the return pipe that runs below the hole system.

    yes. sometimes they can come slightly loose after driving down rough roads and could cause an odor but not enough to actually leak

    Thank you. That looks divergent to my cars. or is that the stripped injector unit...

  • Matthew Clark
    Matthew Clark Dec 14, 2016

    that's a stripped fuel rail. that's what your going to look for due to the injectors being connected to that. all your really going to see is the steel top of it more than likely.

Put a new in tank fuel pump in 3 days ago in my hyundai accent, but can smell petrol inside the car.

I would double check that your fuel tank is sealed. Fuel fumes can be very bad for your health and can be very dangerous. Sounds as though the gas line may be leaking, or the fuel pump seal is leaking.
