    As your question is extremely vague I could take a guess that it will be leaking somewhere between and including the fuel tank and the cylinders petrol injectors,
    I would also suggest that your question does not fit into the sub forum for news,comments or suggestions

    Can I ask how you noticed this slight leak?

    Ask as petrol evaporates quickly.

    Hi MarkyM, thanks for responding.

    I've been getting a very slight smell of petrol as I exit the car for a little while now but about a week ago, as I was about to get into the car, i noticed what appeared to be an oil leak/stain about 1 metre long on my drive just a short distance in front of the off side rear wheel.. When I investigated further the substance was very thin and I realised, especially after smelling the substance, it was in fact petrol and it must have collected/become laced with oil on its journey from wherever it emanated. I've only recently bought this particular car and as it's under warranty I contacted the dealer who's taken it back and had it checked out but can find no leak but I know there's something wrong.

    The only oil at the rear of the vehicle is in the differential, is that leaking?
