Have them check EGR tubes, and any hoses, or tubes running to the exhaust. My guess is ones leaking while driving & getting drawn up into the incoming air at the cowl.

My Pontiac G5 smells like gas inside/out. Took it to the dealer and they can't find the problem. Now the smell has gotten worst. Replaced the fuel filter checked for leaks and did not come across one. ...

Are you topping off the tank (MAX OUT) of while you're filling?

The emission control system can soak with gasoline if you over fill.

Locate the emission line that lead to the charcoal canister and let it air out under direct sunlight.

After 3-5 hours,reconnect the line and use starting fluid to start the car.

After 10 minutes of warm up time,then take it for a short test drive.

DO NOT TOP OFF during refill.

Gasoline smell in air vents

A gasoline smell is from a leaking hose and you need to find that fast
You could have damaged a gas line during your repair work.
Get your money back on the damper repair. There are no gas dampers on autos.

Smells like gasoline in car when it's in idol

Check entire fuel system for leaks 99% of time wen you smell GAS.... there is a leak. So be very careful. Gasoline leaks can be very dangerous. If you had a tune up lately or changed a fuel filter that can be your problem because they are metal line then can be left loose accidentally. Check all fuel lines from fuel thank towards the engine compartment and you should be able to locate source of the smell. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

Strong odor of gasoline inside cabin

The is a short rubber hose in the the fuel line that connects to metal tubes on the driver side of the engine. When it is cold, the rubber shrinks, and if the clamps are loose, the fuel will leak from there. Tighten the clamps or replace the short hose with a hose that has some flex, a bit long, to accommodate the shrinkage movement. 
Good luck with the dealer, because when the engine heats up the hose the fuel does not leak at all. This was a recall on WRXs but even with the same setup, Subaru denies there is an issue in the 2.5 fuel line layout.  My dealer told me to call a tow truck when it happens again, no matter where or when, and bring it in?!?!?!

Gasoline smell from time to time

I have seen a 2004 Grand Am that had a very light leak around one of the fuel injector o-ring seals allowing fuel to seep out onto the lower intake which then vaporize when the engine would get hot making the smell.
