Holden Captiva: Rotten smell and high fuel consumption
THE rotten egg smell and the high fuel consumption are most likely connected. A smell like that was once a sign of a problem with the catalytic converter, and the high fuel consumption suggests there is a problem with the engine system somewhere.
