I was driving to work with my GTi the other day and I had the fan on to demist the windscreen. I noticed a smell of petrol in the car as I was stopped in a traffic jam.

As I had never noticed this before and fearing that there might be a large leak I pulled over and looked in the engine.

I saw that there was fresh wet petrol stains on that pipe the runs along the top of the engine at the back of the rocker cover - near the injectors.

I was afraid it could start a fire so I brought it back home and took the old reliable - my Alfa Gt instead.

Obviously its some leak along the pipe pr from one of the injector seals.

Any cheap solutions to this problem as it would be a pity to have my GTi a burnt out shell without even having got at least one summer out of it.
