Default Fuel smell

Every time i fill up my Peanut when i get home, the car stink of fuel.

I dont think there is a leak, but if there is it is incredibly small. Also, i only fill up to the first click off on bowser and no more.

Does anyone elses do that?

Check the rubber seals on the top of the tank where the fuel pump assembly is.

And theres also a rubber hose where the fuel tank meets the filler neck.

Where does the smell appear to be coming from? Front/ engine bay, or rear of vehicle?

Definitely get a workshop to take a look, might be a leaking seal on the tank
