Fuel leak on FBH
FBH fired up for the first time this winter. No great drama, but after restarting noticed a lot of white smoke at the front and diesel smell. Assumed this was just getting going after the summer, so ignored it! Noticed a lot of white smoke again in the evening, so following morning decided to investigate. Started the engine from cold and heard heater kick in - no smoke from heater exhaust, just warm air, however smoke coming from under the bonnet. Lifted the bonnet to find a lot of smoke coming from the heater and around the exhaust pipe, especially the securing bracket. Turned it all off and it appears there is a fuel leak on the heater, or on the supply pipe, this is then somehow tracking onto the heater exhaust pipe, and when hot generates a lot of smoke. I've pulled the fuse for now - has anyone else had an issue with a fuel leak on the heater? I couldn't see an obvious leak, but signs of oil under the heater!
