Hi Guys, I can smell fuel round the back of car via the exhaust when its running, I guess this means its running rich? Is there anything I should be doing to get this sorted, or is it fine? How can I tell?

Fuel smell? Check hoses, gaskets and tank for fuel leaks. Symptoms of running rich usually overheating, lower power and excessive sooth on tailpipe. If you think you running rich, first easy thing is to check air filter for cleanliness.

Any chance you recently switched to a high flow cat or replace other turbo back exhaust components?

No, nothing. Its due a service, and i recently had a muddle with oils, putting in 10/40 then 0/40 when apparently it needs to be 5/40 here is Spain.

Power seems OK, but not amazing, kind of put that down to it needing a service though.

Could a sensor be out? Is there a way I can check?
