Post subject: Petrol smell in bathroom?
I put my heating on a couple of hours ago and after half an hour i could smell a strong smell, wasnt sure if it was gas or what but noticed it was coming from the area round the kitchen radiator. Then i noticed that there was a plastic bag leaning against it so i thought it must be that burning. I moved it away and the smell disappeared.
But then OH comes through and says to go in the bathroom cos he could smell something. I go in and it is REALLY strong smelling of like petrol I've never had a gas leak so dunno if thats what gas smells like or what but i turned my heating off. Its now only in the bathroom, no other room smells and it doesnt smell like its coming from the radiator I live in a 2nd floor flat so also dunno if it could be coming through the floor or ceiling from one of my neighbours.
My mum said i should phone the gas company but i dont even know if thats what it is. Has anyone had this before?

maybe someone was working outside on a car and the petrol smell had wafted in the window?
petrol and gas smell very different.
petrol stations usually smell of petrol, (I love that smell).
a chemical added to make it smell, it is a sickly rotten egg sort of smell, you can almost taste it too - yak!
