doblo wheelchair access 2008 1400 petrol model

Hi,
I have recently bought a fiat doblo year 08. It is 1400 petrol. It is a wheelchair access model with a dropped floor. only 23k on the clock. I am very happy with it except for one thing. It smells of petrol when I am driving it.
Is this normal because the exhaust comes out from beside the drivers door?
I also only seem to get about 25 worth of petrol in it and the pump stops saying it is full?
Probably because of the dropped floor and a smaller tank.
Can anyone please give me the pros and cons expected with my recently purchased Doblo.?

Is this a Gowrings by any chance? if so the fuel tank (which is smaller and Gowings made) is not well supported and moves to the left , then the fuel filler is hit by the road spring and cracks the weld where it enters the fuel tank and leaks causing fire hazard Diabolical design and build! and when I told Gowings about it the answer was "Fair ware and tear! !!
