G'day, just bought this car and all is well and good apart from a strong petrol smell on starting. This only happens first thing in the morning or after she's been left for a few hours. No sign of petrol leaks. Could this be a cold start or choke problem ? Smell goes when you start driving. ..
Thanks.

most common place to leak(or get damp) are the fuel lines under the car,most are in very bad condition nowadays unless theyve already been replaced

the centre pipe is a vent pipe and I have seen a couple which are completely holed right through

worth a check
