Keep checking the oil level and the transmission fluid level to make sure they stay full, but there should be no oil in the gas tank.
There may be water, however, and it may be brown like oil.
Water will sit in the bottom of the tank and make rust underneath the gasoline, since gasoline floats on water.

Why does my toyota corolla smells like gas very strongly?


I had a 91 that smelled of gas because the vent line to the file hole rusted out. It got to where it would leak out on the ground if I opened the nozzle all the way up when filling.

follow the steps for fix it. God bless you
Instructions
    • 1 Drive until your gas tank is nearly empty, ideally until the fuel level is below the gas tank leak, if possible. You can determine this by routinely stopping and checking for oil leaks. If oil is still leaking, the gas tank is still filled above the leak. Use brake cleaner to clear 6 to 8 inches around the leak. Wear gloves and protective glasses while you work. Do not let your gas tank completely empty before you perform repairs.
    • 2 Use a scraper and sandpaper to remove road tar, rust or grime around the leak. Use brake cleaner on the area again and allow it to dry
    • 3 Remove the epoxy from its packaging, taking the same amount from both sticks. Mix the epoxy together, massaging it between your fingers until it is the same color.
    • 4 Form epoxy into a cone shape and push it into the hole or leaky area. Use a plastic spreader to smooth the remaining epoxy into place. Allow the epoxy to completely cure. If the leaking problem persists, take the car in for professional repairs.

Best bet is to replace gas tank. It could hae a hairline fracture somewhere. Sounds like pretty much everything else was replaced already.

Leaking gas tank


Assume you damaged the gas tank. If you broke a line or filler neck this won't work.

Raise vehicle (safely) and clean tank - careful not to spark - NO GRINDING. I use regular sand paper. Find the hole - sometimes takes a bit of looking. If small, here is an old trick: rub the corner of a bar of soap over the leak and if done correctly, it will stop the leak (no, you're not done). Clean the area around the leak a little better - still careful of sparks. Get some epoxy that will stick to metal wet with gas (from AutoZone). Seal the hole with this epoxy and you should be good. Work quickly - the working time of the epoxy is less than they say it is.

good luck.
