FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Yet another smelly fuel tank

W reg 2000 SPI Sei. If I fill the tank with more than 12 litres of fuel it smells of petrol both inside and out of the car. If I keep the level low it doesnt smell so it looks like a leaky tank. Been looking through all the threads on this and Im just trying to be sure wether this car would or not come under the recall. This is the origional tank. If not whats a ballpark figure for getting one replaced at a fiat dealer. Thanks guys

One reason people are getting so irate about this issue is because fiat seem to be treating individual cases differently. Some have recently been offered free fuel tanks without question others like myself have witnessed troubles such as an extremely hostile response from a service manager in a local dealer. My tank was replaced under recall in 2001 Im led to believe and subsequently holed. fiat replied

It bugged me when he referred me to the dealer again cos fiat are responsible for the genuine parts and they in the fuel tanks case are rubbish its no the dealers fault. For the record the dealers of took care of mine under the ownership of the person who had it before me has no closed so there is no one to answer too. I hate to be defeated but might buy a tank and fit it myself that means I can go

New tanks are plastic i believe (correct if wrong) and in theory there have been no problems. It sounds unfortuneatly you have a fuel leak and you will have to pay the qoute given as there is nothing you can do. If it is a fiat

this morning i woke to my car leaking fuel all over the drive i was gutted

I know this thread is over a year old now but my fuel tank has just started leaking along the seam. Im after the fiat hq number as mentioned above is it 00800 3428 0000 A while back I remeber a thread where it listed all recalls by VIn number on the seicento and cinquecento models but i cant seem to find it now if anyone could come up with a link it would be greatly appreciated. Matt


Did a little research and the fuel tanks on our beloved cinqs were deemed manufacturer faulted years ago(NOV 99) - prompting a recall. Corrosion occurred around welded center seam on tanks leading to vapour leaks and fuel leakage. I am not experiencing the beloved fuel save from running a little fiat and after repeated petrol aromas and inspection of the road beneath the car i can confirm..... IM LOOSING

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Fuel tank pressurising

Hi After filling up the tank (not brimmed) and some spirited driving I parken my car and noticed fuel gushing out of the filler neck. I guess replacing the neck has just moved up the to do list (cap is already new) there seems to be al loose lockingring inside so now the cap cant lock itself. What I was worried aboput was the fact that after removing the cap (I heard a venting sound) the fuel kept

My Cinq used to do this but I never found the exact cause I figured the problem might be due to there being not enough volume of air left in the tank to compress when very cold fuel (from the underground tank at the filling station) expands after being warmed by being in the car tank and being cycled through the fuel pump etc (unless Im wrong I think unused fuel in the engine bay lines is returned to the tank). I cured it by not filling the tank all the way up into the filler neck. There isnt any drain to blockthe filler goes straight into the tank and there is a smaller pipe that goes from the top of the tank to the filler neck top to allow air to escape as you fill with fuel (if this was blocked Id expect it to blow fuel out when filling ) The only other thing I can think of is mine had an aftermarket filler cap and maybe the standard fiat one has a vent

As Cinq owners you will probably know that our cars had a recall some years back...1999 I think To replace the fuel tanks as the seam wield may start to corrode causing a fuel leak Remember Well it just happens to be that mine was recalled in 1999 and was replaced with a brand spanking new tank. I asked the fiat garage about the fuel tanks which may have leaked due to this fault and he said that their

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Fuel Tank Trouble

My fuel tank started leaking and I managed to get my fuel tank replaced as part of the recall. During the replacement the garage broke a valve in the fuel line and they charge me for the part but not the labour. I couldnt collect the car that day because it wouldnt start without that part so I needed to get a lift to work . They claimed that the valve was blocked and I must have had trouble with the

It may ofcourse still be something else but its their duty to make sure that the newly mounted tank is not leaking. In either case - go back and complain. Car smelling of fuel is not a safe one to drive. The evaporation valve - is that what they broke I was buying it once at fiat


Right just my luck as the fuel tank is leaking (yippee) - I purchased on from eBay for a good price. So today I have taken the task of sorting it out. 2 hours later the tank is off (2 broken bolts) here is my problem. On the rotten 899cc tank there is a fuel sender unit on the top and a inlet pipe for the fuel return right - there is another 2 cylinders with their hole that go in the top of the tank

the main fuel in. On the top of the tank you insert in the small hole a cydiner with a blue pipe connectected to it (dont know where it goes) I have 2 of these on my Sei but the new tank has only 2 holes as per the photo attached - one for fuel sender and 1 cylinder (what is this cylinder for). Old tank had 3. The Cylinder goes in and turns to lock Attached Thumbnails   __________________ fiat

Hi there all daughter got an 02 schumacher which appears to have a leaky petrol tank. Were Seis part of the recall scheme. If so whats fiat HQ phone number Thanks. Alun.

my 99 sei gasses me with petrol fumes if the tanks over half full and i go up or down a hill no smell on the flats though must be the top edge of the tank took the diamond plate off today to look around the sender unit part and the tank looks in great condition but the fumes were still strong. i cant jack itup at the minute because its decided to break so i cant give it a thourough looking over yet. i dont seem to be losing much fuel if any its just like the fuel vapour escaping could it possibly be a seal around the sender unit or the tank breather pipe or is it more likley to be an unseen rust hole. i checked last night if my car was one of the recall ones for this and it isnt if the worst came to the worst do you think i could get a nice new tank from fiat for nothing too

Hi There is a recent thread on here re my fuel tank on a 99 sei. In a nutshell contacted fiat customer relations via fiat web site. I told them that petrol was leaking onto the exhaust from the fuel tank and that the car was dangerous. fiat organised replacement tank and the work was done at Stoneacre Doncaster all free of charge. Brilliant for a car that is 9 years old.

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 fuel tank change not right since

Had fuel tank changed by main fiat dealer as a result of recall on my Seicento Sporting. Nice little car before now misfires idling speed goes down has stalled and judders when accelerating in low gear. Putting fuel in car has an effect i.e. last time seemed to get better previous time it got worse. Just had it checked by a very reluctant main dealer(same as did fuel tank) who said no problem. Now

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 A bother with a new fuel tank

Hi there I just fitted a new fuel tank in my cinq sporting cause the old one was leaking. Everything went more or less fine (apart from two broken bolts seems to be common and a long ordeal with fiat getting the right tank). Now what I am concerned with is the return pipe fitting. It went in fine screwed in but it seems to be a bit loose. After fitting everything in it does not move even one bit but

nicely. The problem is that it is not as tight as I would imagine it should (meanining the whole device can be unscrewed with a minimal force small finger say). When the tank is mounted the blue fuel line (by its stiffness) holds the thing into place so no problem for the thing to fall out. But the tightness My guess it should be FT to seal the tank properly. Anyways I ordered a new seal from fiat

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Seicento Fuel Tank

Hi I have a 1999 Sei with a fuel tank that leaks from the passenger side seams. Apparently this was subject to a recall but fiat only exammined the tank for signs of leakage. It wasnt leaking at the time so nothing was done. I do not know when the recall inspection was carried out because I have only owned the car for two years. Does anyone know if I can get the tank changed by fiat under the recall

Give fluffy a call or pop in if youre anywhere near derby httpwww.eurocarcare.netfuel-tanks046511894.html Or you could ring up your local fiat garage and see if theyll put it in as a recall due to some of the earlier models suffering from a corrosive fuel tank. Though my car is 2002 this is what we were going to do you can still swing it so theyll do the recall though its later I found a second hand genuine tank with very low mileage though. Pirus


Hi was wondering if anyone can help me. My W Reg Sceicento went for its MOT the other day and I was told I need a new fuel tank as mine has corroded and is leaking fuel. I googled new fuel tanks for Sceicento and found an old post on here that mentioned a recall so I checked the FAQs and my VIN isnt included in this. Would it still be worth contacting a fiat dealer to see if I can qualify for the recall


I have an R reg Sporting Cinq which has the much discussed fuel disposal problem. Especially when the car is being chucked around a bit. I contacted our local fiat dealer about the fuel tank re-call which I have read about to see if it had been done but they said there was no recall for the cinq fuel tank. Please could somebody advise me if there was a re-call Am I saying the wrong thing to the dealer Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks. Deedoubleyoo.

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Sei fuel problem. 180 mile to the tank

Hi People Was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on my most recent Seicento problem After a tune up im still only getting 18090 miles to the tank. My tune up consisted of changing the fuel filter oil filter spark plugs and leads and air filter. A friend of mine said it could be the carburetor and the amount of petrol being pumped through. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Luke

Ah hang on. Maybe the tank is leaking if you can smell unburnt fuel sometimes but otherwise its running ok Especially if its been parked up overnight and you can smell a wee bit of petrol when you come outside to it in the morning (moreso if parked on a hill). Have a look underneath the car under the back seats see if it looks damp at all. fuel tanks arewere a recall issue with cinquecentos and Seicentos
