Looking for advice guys, took my 325 out for a spin d other day after been parked up for a while, problem is theres a strong smell of petrol /fumes coming from the engine,told this could be a perished fuel pipe up near the manifold,any views would be great

Thanks Noel.

Hi Noel,

I had a similar sounding problem on an E30 316i - one of the pipes under the inlet manifold had just cracked at the end (by a clip). Fuel was pouring down the side of the block! It should be pretty easy to spot and I believe it is fairly common.

Let us know how you get on.

Yeah, there are two small scetions of 1/4" (?) hose for the fuel send and return lines. Have a look at:
