He did say "natural" gas. Maybe he ran over a vegetarian?

ROFL!!! :lol:

I would check for fluid leaks first. Where is the smell coming from?

oil leak is coming from high pressure gearbox hose! seems that the smell is only there when i change gear lever, it's an automatic, could it be my clutch that the smell is coming from? big job? or (hopefully!!!) that the level is just down in the gearbox and needs topping up...

There is no clutch on an automatic. Or more correctly there are between seven and nine of them. But they are not user servicable items usually. Everything is controlled by the ATF oil and valves. If the oil gets too low then the clutches could start to burn (they are made of a special type of paper like material) and that may cause a smell. Not sure about natural gas though. To be pedantic LPG and Natural gas are both odourless. They add a stenching agent to make them smell for safey sake. I think they use the same agent and so the same smell ???

:pray:
