As above, I get quite a strong smell of petrol in the cabin after starting from cold. It seems to wear off when the car has warmed up.

Any pointers as to what I should check?

Car is a 1.2 8V.

Thanks.

should be normal from my experience
just the car pumping more fuel into the system compensating due to being cold
unless someone has any other dieas?

Check the tank, pipes and filter for leaks.

You wouldn't expect to see enough fuel to cause a smell under normal operation.
