SOURCE: gasoline odor

You'll need to inspect every inch of the fuel system for leaks. I would start in the engine compartment. Chech injectors, fuel rail, lines to rail,etc. Check under car for leaks in lines, around tank. Use you nose to give you an idea where to start. Since it fills the passanger compartment I'm betting on the engine compartment in which the fumes could get in through the heater intake which is close.Look for wet spots. It could also be a leak in the evaporative emissions system which includes charcoal canister, purge system and lines but you'd probably have a check engine light with a problem in those systems. The hotter the vehicle and climate will make the leak harder to find due to evaporation.

SOURCE: Smell of gas fumes underneath vehicle near fuel tank

I also have a 2004 XC90 and a couple of months ago I had the exact same probelm... after multiple visits to my dealer's auto shop they figured out that it was the fuel pump. They replaced the fule pump and the smell disappeared. Good luck!

SOURCE: gas fumes inside and out side the car when it is hot outside

Try having the area that the hose was disconnected from steamed cleaned, or go to a car wash wash and spray the area. It might help, that is if you already haven't done so.

Gasoline or exhaust fumes? If exhaust, you have a leak. If gasoline smell, tank may be over full and vent may be clogged.

Inspect your car immediately. Leaking gasoline is a fire hazard, especially check the seals on the fuel injectors.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

fuel systems have a vent or a purge solinoid which will purge the fumes back to the tank which can in some cases send excess fumes to the vent
