no exhaust system is OK.don't smell it all the time.could o2 sensor be on its way out.

I have seen the gaskets / seals around the injectors have allowed the smell into the engine bay and into the cabin, check all the seals and make sure they are clean!

if you get the car onto ramps, can you check the underside and see if you can actually smell any petrol at all on the underside of the car, it could be that its heating the exhaust and a crack is expanding with the pressure allowing petrol / gaseous petrol to escape.

I don't smell it all the time just now and a again if it was a crack in the exhaust it would be blowing wouldn't it
