Are you sure is exhaust emission or a fuel smell? If is others Exhaust emission,and is coming in the cabin possible you might have ventilators not working properly,or the doors under the dashboard are kept slight open allowing the outside smell or getting inside the cabin. On the dashboard there is a circulation air button,press it to work. What that button does? Is blocking the outside air coming in and the air you are using iis the inside cabin air only. Use that button for a day and see whether you have any improvement. If so you have to go back to the dealer and explain. Surely they will help you.
could be anything from engine oil on the engine block burning as your driving and coming inside through the air flow from the outside vents, you can always click over the button and recirculate the interior air which will close the vents from pulling air from the motor. Might want to take it in and inspect it, if its not burning oil off the engine somewhere the only rubber would be your tires rubbing somewhere on the wheelwell or the frame and possible melting in that manor.
Main fuel line from tank to fuel pump, Sounds like the pump is sucking the fuel and air is getting in also, only when the fuel system is pressurised and the return line is sending fuel back to the tank will the air pressure in the tank be higher than the outside atmosphere and then air will no longer be sucked into the system - if this is true there will be a fuel leak - maybe only a little - to find if there is a leak, start the car on level ground, turn off the engine and restart it several times, then move the car back and check on the ground for any fuel - also check under the bonnet and sniff around for any strong petrol smells - there will probably be a fuel pipe damp with petrol - tell me what you find - if it is or isn't leaking I can give you the next steps to identifying the problem -
No not common. Check to see if petrol is leaking anywhere. Check good this is unsafe. Sitting in traffic gives the fumes time to rise up. Try closing the vents if possible but certainly check for raw petrol.
