Likely to be the gas tank vent hose that allows air to escape from the tank when filling. Probably located somewhere along the trail from the filler tube to the tank and likely to be difficult to reach. The connections get loose and the hose falls off sending fumes into the passenger compartment.

SOURCE: 1997 Smells Like Gasoline

That is being caused by the charcoal vapor canister located under the hood of the car. It has become saturated with gas and needs replacing.

It could be a problem with the vent system. A pipe could be blocked or cracked and fumes are getting into the cab via perhaps the trunk. Have the tank vent system checked, it is quite a sophiticated system and involves several pipes etc.

Strong smell of visible leak...Any input??

All it takes is to have fuel seep for a smell. Inspect all fuel lines and fuel injectors/pressure regulator for dampness/stains. Make sure fuel cap seals well. If fuel tank is filled to the max, it can cause the charcoal canister to fill with fuel as well resulting in a gas smell.

How can i get to the fuel tank send unit only reads half full

well if you have it an empty fuel light came on to your dash, then you have travelled and just consumed the whole entire reserved gas in your tank, so when you are filling it up again, it will fill-up first the reservoir for your reserved gas then if it reach the minimum level of gas in your tank, then the fuel sensor unit will tell you now the exact amount of gas level on your gauge just keep filling it up (gas), DO not Press the entire trigger of the pump, just press it half way and moderate while filling -up gas so wont stop clicking and you thought that you have your tank full already but it was not.

The electronic gas guage is dropping fast a trip of 5 miles used half a tank of gas but no gas smell

I would check the fuel sending unit.If it's too expensive zero the odometer reading unit each time you fill up. Refill after a reasonable amount of mileage
