Have an 07 civic and recently noticed a strong smell of petrol when starting the car up from cold.
Was just wanting to know if any one else has had a similar issue and got any ideas what the problem could be?

Thanks in advance

choke ?? engine will always run richer on start up....
plus with the dense cold air the smell will linger

Choke? I think it has been a while since there has been a Civic with a carb.

But yes, an engine Ecu will give more fuel from cold.
that would be a manual choke then :) but the basics remain the same ;)
