Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You may need to purchase a new cap first. You need to go to that same area and look under the vehicle. Check out all your gas lines, some run to the tank and the others come from the tank to the front of the vehicle. You may have a leak. Check the gas tank also and make sure nothing is punctured. You could have a clogged fuel filter if you haven't changed it in awhile. It needs changed between 30,000-50,000, give or take in that range.

Peugeot RCZ 2010 petrol 1.6 l 115 kw 155 tho. Vacuum when I take the oil cap off when engine is running


NEVER remove the oil filler cap when the engine is running. It will upset the engine pressures and possibly cover you and the engine in oil splatters.
Petrol engines have a negative pressure by design.

A strong smell of petrol means a strong possibility of fire so it is very important to find the cause and cure it.

Any significant leak would leave evidence on a clean smooth floor but if the smell isn't strong when the car is running but stationary and there is no evidence underneath then there is a distinct possibility it only leaks while being driven.

While being driven the engine will move around on the flexible engine mounts as a reaction to acceleration and deceleration and a few feet of fuel pipe near the front will be flexing because of that. It is possible a joint might be leaking a little or a crack in a pipe is opening as the engine moves.

A strong fuel smell indicates a leak and unless the leak is directly on the floor there will be evidence though a good light and a degree of patience will be needed - and of course being at eye level with the area being inspected.
