Question about Cars & Trucks
Your problem is most likely coming from your gas cap. Your vehicle's gas cap may seem tight, but the rubber washer around the inner edge of the gas cap may be defective. Go purchase another gas cap for your car at one of the nearest auto part's location's nearest you. Change the gas cap and reset your vehicle's computer by taking the positive terminal off for a minute and replace the battery cable back on the vehicle. This method reset's your vehicle's computer. If the gas cap is the main problem, your check engine light won't come back on and your problem is solved. Gas is highly combustible and dangerous. always use precaution's when doing any work on your vehicle that require's working with any part's associated with any part's of the gas emission's system including the gas tank, gas cap, purge solenoid, charcoal canister, fuel filter, fuel pump, etc., etc. the gas smell can also be coming from a broken or faulty rubber gas line or the metal clamp's connected to the rubber hose's located between the gas tank fill valve and the gas tank itself. there are several black rubber gas hose's associated with the gas tank. have a qualified technician check the gas emission's system for any and all leak's gas also evaporate's fast, do to the combustibility again always use caution when attempting any and all repair's requiring checking the gas or emission's evaporation system. Sincerely Crystopper.

SOURCE: gasoline odor
Oh yes there is and there is a charcol canister up under the hood that captures the vapors if the canister is full you could smell fuel.
You will need a shop that has a SMOKE MACHINE to find the leak in the evaporative emissions plumbing from the tank to the engine compartment.
Please give me a fixya! Rating if this information is helpful

SOURCE: strong gas odor but no leaks
I had an old chevy truck that was carbureted with a mechanical fuel pump. I drove for months with the same fuel smell. It ended up being a small hole in the pump itself, on the side of the engine. It evaporated too quickly from the hot engine temperature to catch. hope maybe that might help if you have a mechanical pump.

SOURCE: strong odor of gasoline vapors
do u have a check engine light on? do u overfill the tank? which is to say when the filler nozzle clicks off do u still try to put more fuel in? in any event u most likely have a overloaded carbon canister, pull the canister out and check it for gasoline saturation, the carbon canister is located under the car in a tray near the fuel tank.
