I braked fairly firmly the other day and noticed an immediate smell of petrol in the cabin (997.2 C2S). This has persisted. It is only noticeable when the car is running and moving. Any ideas or obvious causes? No visible leaks as far as I can see.
Cheers
Rick

2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

I had this once on my 996 turbo, it was the seal on the filler cap. New filler cap from OPC and all was fine. Probably the cheapest thing to ever go wrong on the car.

This happened on my 997 Turbo. OPC replaced filler cap. The seal perishes after a while and the fumes bellow through the over spill drain and smell flows into the cabin

New filler cap - the seal degrades over time. Had exactly the same issue with mine
