Hi guys,

Noticed a oil patch underneath my car this morning. Oil is black with strong smell of petrol. At least i think it's oil.

Rear passenger side, about 10ml on the floor?

Recency filled the car with petrol and some injector cleaner if that makes a difference. Would have it up and have a peak but struggling to get under the car at the moment due to recent surgery!

Anyone had something similar?

Yeah I suspect stu is on the right lines in that it's the petrol filler pipe that's leaking. If the pipe has corroded badly then the petrol picks up some gunk as it leaches through the metal, hence the oil like appearance yet petrol smell. I had this happen on my old Celica and the same pipe on my current Evo X isn't looking too great these days either.
