This is dangerous anytime there is a smell of petrol. You must locate the leak immediately and perhaps takes 2 people as one turns the key as the other looks around the engine to discover the leak which may be coming from a leaky injector on top of the engine or a gas line going from engine to under the firewall to the rear of the car. Look for a fine spray of fuel or wet spot on lines/hoses.
