Leaking Fuel Injectors Mean Porsche Hybrids Aren't Being Very Eco-Friendly

The 2011-12 Cayenne Hybrid is leaking has from the fuel injector system. That’s not very eco-friendly, although it one approach to using less gas (I kid, of course)?

The problem is two-fold:

  1. The leak can be so bad that some owners have said they can smell the gas inside the cabin
  2. And gas leak can quickly turn your car into a hybrid-kabob

This is probably a good time to put down that cigarette (if you’re still into that sort of thing). The automaker plans to replace the fuel rails and corresponding seals to try to stop the leak. Full details of the recall are available on CarComplaints.com.
