Gotta 61 reg 5 door C4 1.6 diesel hatchback with 97k on the clock

There is a slight fuel fume sort of whiff made worse by using the fan on hot/warm.

I have changed the cabin filter

Had a problem with previous C4 which was the Injector leakoff pipe (apparently) squirting diesel around the engine bay BUT it all looks dry on current car.

Any ideas as to what's that whiff will be appreciated folks . . . .

Elsewhere, some say that it will be fuel getting past the Injector. Needs a new seal, could be a heavy build up of carbon around the Injector. They can be hard to get out.

Does that sound about right?
