hi guys

when starting my focus up in the morning (2.0 zetec) after about 5-6 seconds theres a strong smell of petrol outside the car to the rear and alittle smokey (white) this clears once you give it a rev and then the smell starts to dissappear, no smell inside car

any ideas?????

Probably a fueling problem. Take the car to a dealer or someone who tunes cars and ask for a diagnostic to be carried out. This should put matters right and ease your mind and wallet.
