Diesel engine Santa Fe 2011 Automatic: I have a problem that is proving difficult to find the cause. There is a slight smell of gas that comes through the air vents. The smell is like bottled gas, I don’t mean a smell of petrol or diesel. I have had the exhaust pipe and tubes inspected by two independent garages and also by a Hyundai specialist. All say that they can’t find a fault.

The smell comes in the cabin when the car is at its usual operating temperature and normally experience the smell as a sudden puff of smell (not constant).

Any ideas what this could be?

Thanks.

Mark.

We had a local university professor release LPG into the closed cabin of a car and ignite it to prove that the quantity need for the cars air conditioner was not sufficient to kill someone in the event of a leak and ignition. He got burns from the melted roof lining, bad hearing and a court attendance notice.
