Default 2008 ISF - Unburned fuel sulfur smell inside cabine...

...with all windows and sunroof closed when under hard acceleration or during a spirited driving. Use only premium fuel from either 76 / Chevron / Mobil or Shell since first day rolling out the showroom.

The service tech at Longo Lexus can't even breathe without rolling down the windows during the test drive and yet, adamantly stated it's "Normal".

It's not normal, is it?

Hello avgj0F, we recommend you seek a second opinion as a fuel odor in your cabin would not be considered normal. Please contact our Customer Satisfaction Department here: if we can be of further assistance ~Sean P., Lexus Customer Satisfaction

Has the car in question had the ELF fuel pressure recall done yet?

If not, that would be my first thought as the likely cause.

Detail can be found here:

Hope you get to the bottom of it soon.
