Are you sure it wasn't anything you ate?

Absolutely. I take a Beano tablet after every meal.

I've had the same fuel odor inside my Discovery Sport. Land Rover worked with my dealer to replace the 2015 model with a 2016 and it's still happening. It happens when the vehicle is first started and while standing still. In my opinion, this is a dangerous health and safety issue that Land Rover needs to fix.

Knock on wood... I do not have the same experience in mine.

I have a 7 seater... maybe some things are moved around near the gas line to make it different for me.

Me, too.

I've had the 2017 Disco Sport HSE Luxury with Climate Control, Auto Stop, Eco Program,etc., for about a week, and I'm also experiencing exhaust fumes inside the vehicle. My dealer says he has never heard of this before. Of course. It seems to be worse on backing up, and on stopping, which perhaps allows fumes from the exhaust to get sucked into the Climate air system (?). It also still happens after turning off the Auto Stop function. I did not have the recirculate option on. I gather, after searching the net, that this seems to be a problem with Disco Sports of the last three years. Evidently, Land Rover still hasn't found the solution. My dealer says to bring back the car if the problem is still there after driving it a few more weeks. Has anyone found the solution to this yet? I don't see why I should have to drive my new car with the window always cranked open to prevent asphyxiation!

Seems like so many people are having issues with this on the Discovery Sport and not only one model but a number of models. It'd be interesting to see if there are any other cars that have the same issue as well. Perhaps there might be answers to what's happening from a engineering perspective rather than specifically to the model?

Well, second time I'm writing this. Lost the first very lengthy post because I neglected to log in. Oh well.

Basically, I think that this is a design/engineering flaw. I am starting to think that it actually has to do with the way the wind is blowing -- if the exhaust from the tail pipes gets blown under the car, it then travels up and gets sucked into the cabin air intake. If the wind is cooperating, there is no problem. This problem never happens when the climate control air system is off, so cabin air has to be actively sucked in, the air system must be turned on, to smell the exhaust fumes. Possible solutions: put an air cleaning pre-filter onto the cabin air intake. Or, direct the exhaust tail pipes upwards so exhaust can't go underneath so easily? Or, put an accessory fan into the exhaust system to increase the speed of the exhaust coming out of the pipes, to prevent it from drifting backwards so easily. Anyway, we'll be taking the car into service, but, I really don't expect a solution to this anytime soon.

The exhaust smell inside our vehicle has gone. I still dont know what it was or why it magically went away. Good luck!
