Fuel smells are dangerous for children?

This is take 2. In a school, wibu to think that a room next to a tank room which smells strongly of fuel should not be used for 1:1 sessions for young children. Would you be happy with your 6 year old spending an hour in a room which smelt strongly of fuel (I think diesel but not certain)? And more specifically if 6 year old had had significant problems with lungs/asthma when younger?

A quick google search indicates that fuel is odourless and perfumed to make its presence known so any odour at all suggests the gas is present, though no idea to what extent. Does anyone have decent knowledge re this?

but it depends if it's a one off or regular occurence.

nope..I wouldn't be happy - plus DD wouldn't do it...she is sensitive to smell and would freak out and scream.

Thanks, I am glad i am not the only one. I thought I was being totally reasonable, I only questioned it when i was told "it is just the smell in there no fuel" confused

Purple i think for some children it is regular.

Morphene unfortunately dc absolutely loves the smell, but we have talked about it quite a lot at home and I am hoping will stay away!
