Why doses my car smell of petrol now and then when I am driving ?

Chances are the smell is coming from a fuel leak around the engine.
The air vents pull air in from the engine compartment, especially when the car is moving.

Smelling exhaust while in traffic

Are you sure is exhaust emission or a fuel smell? If is others Exhaust emission,and is coming in the cabin possible you might have ventilators not working properly,or the doors under the dashboard are kept slight open allowing the outside smell or getting inside the cabin. On the dashboard there is a circulation air button,press it to work. What that button does? Is blocking the outside air coming in and the air you are using iis the inside cabin air only. Use that button for a day and see whether you have any improvement. If so you have to go back to the dealer and explain. Surely they will help you.

Hyundai Coupe 2.7 V6 auto 2002 I have a problem starting my coupe. This is an intermittent problem and has no pattern. so frustrating :( She will turn over but will not start, it take 2-5 times of key...

Main fuel line from tank to fuel pump, Sounds like the pump is sucking the fuel and air is getting in also, only when the fuel system is pressurised and the return line is sending fuel back to the tank will the air pressure in the tank be higher than the outside atmosphere and then air will no longer be sucked into the system - if this is true there will be a fuel leak - maybe only a little - to find if there is a leak, start the car on level ground, turn off the engine and restart it several times, then move the car back and check on the ground for any fuel - also check under the bonnet and sniff around for any strong petrol smells - there will probably be a fuel pipe damp with petrol - tell me what you find - if it is or isn't leaking I can give you the next steps to identifying the problem -

I have petrol smells coming from my air vents, is this common. Mostly happens when sitting in traffic.

No not common. Check to see if petrol is leaking anywhere. Check good this is unsafe. Sitting in traffic gives the fumes time to rise up. Try closing the vents if possible but certainly check for raw petrol.
