Remove the vacuum hose from the fuel pressure regulator have some one turn the key on but dont start the car if gas leaks out the regulator is bad.

I would definatly recheck the regulator to make certain you do not have any leaks.
But to be clear, you are smelling gas and not exhaust?
Also, is you cowl seal in good shape, not missing or damaged in any way?
Let me know.

SOURCE: Evap leak
your caravan has a system to control fumes from the gas tank .. any evaporating fuel is absorbed into a canister .. that is connected to a evap/purge solenoid in the engine compartment that directs the fumes to be burned in the engine once its running .. .. the problem can be as simple as a damaged or leaking or wrong type gas cap .. if the gas cap doesnt seal well then air can be drawn into the evaporitive control system ... also if any of the hoses from the evap/purge solenoid to the canister (located near the gas tank) are cracked or loose, you will get the same results .. some of these hoses are rubber .. some are hard plastic .. sometimes they come loose at the canister and need a clamp added ... the evap/purge solenoid could also be bad but much more likely the gas cap is just bad, bent or wrong ..
