Welcome to the family!


To resolve the petrol smell, I would suggest that you start by checking if there is any form of pollen / cabin air filter, if so replace it.


Otherwise, check the engine block and check the seals around the injectors. Sometimes as these degrade, the fuel vapours leak into the engine bay and enter the air intakes spreading the smell of petrol.
