SOURCE: gasoline odor
I have a 1991 Acclaim that had a gas odor problem. It only smelled when the car was running. There were no external leaks to be found when the car was not running. It turned out to be a leaking fuel line that runs thru the rear wheel well and would only leak when the line was under pressure. Which was when you were driving.

There is a vent valve located near the fuel tank. The vent valve is part of the EVAP emission system. If the valve is obstructed or failed, air will not escape while refueling.
Has the service engine light come on at all?

I suggest that you put it back together, clean it, and pressure test the cooling system. Needs to hold 13 to 15 psi. THEN look for leaks.

Testimonial: "Thanks, will do. "
Dan the reason it takes it from a gas can is there is no pressure building up in the line as you would have from a gas tank. As you fill the tanks the air inside of the tank has to go out as the tank fills up. I would suggest checking the fill hose thats connected to the gas tanks and the spout inlet where you put the hose to fill the tanks and check for kinks in the hose. Second there should be a vent hose from the tanks that connects to the spout also check it for kinks or blockage this would prevent air from escaping from the tank causing the gas pump to cut off due to the rapid filling of the tank without the air being able to escape. Hope this helps
