    Probably Sulfur.

    Just did a quick google around. Suggests there is maybe there is a high amount of it in the fuel, and/or the catalytic converter is not filtering it all out.

                From what I've been told it's usually a catalytic converter that is broken, usually through degredation of the main core part. The fix? Replace the bloody thing. Sulfar Trioxide is nasty.
                If at first you don't succeed, add duct take.

                    I second the new cat converter. We had a guy on the pulsar group with the same issue. A new cat should take that stink right away!!
