I my friend have a question for you...
Did you top of the fuel tank after your last fill up?
It might be your fuel over flow tube under the bike,
that the smell is coming from.
It is designed to discharge the overflow safely
on the road beneath you...
Check it...Good luck.

this is pretty easy. You first have to remove the skid plate which is held on by three bolts then once you have that done you need to disconnect the fuel fill tube. which is the three inch tube coming off the back of the tank. next remove the breather tube right next to the fill tube. then you will see two metal straps holding the tank itself. their should be one bolt each on the ends you can see. dont worry about the other ends they are a tongue and groove type setup. once you have the one side off the side against the frame will slip right off. Be sure to have a jack under the tank so it dosnt drop on you. but once you have the tank down disconnect the pump by turning on the ring that runs around its top. You may have to put a piece of wood on one of the tines and smack it with a hammer to knock it loose. once that is done jack up the rear driver side of your truck and pull the tank right ou. put it back in, in the reverse order.

A 1996 Bronco fuel pump is in the tank. The tank will have to be dropped. After that, it's quick & easy. The filter is on the rail, not so easy even with the line removal tools. Wear safety glasses in case of any pressure.

Use lots of wd40 on tank strap bolts. If they bigin to bind tighten them up and losen again to get rust out of threads. If you remove the straps, why not remove the fill neck and lower tank? Much easier to work that way!!!

it should have a guard where it goes into the tank to prevent people from stealing gas. my recommendation is A. try a long skinnier hose and dip it down as far as possible and then retrieve it and see if the end is wet with fuel. B. drop the fuel tank.
