Question about Mercury Villager
It sounds like your vehicle is loading up with fuel, or you have a leak. Your vehicle has a series of sensors that detect engine temp, outside temp, humidity and air pressure to get you the perfect mix for the prevailing conditions. It sounds like everything is ok during warm up, but as the engine warms, your mix does not properly adjust. These sensors can be checked with an OBD I code reader to see if a diagnostic is stored. Check all fuel lines and connections for possible leaks as well. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

If the gas smell seems to be from the engine compartment, check for
any gas leaks along the fuel rails, and the lines that feed them.
The fuel rails run along side the valve covers and supply gas to each
cylinder. Also check for vacum leaks around the intake manifold.
The best way to check for vacum leaks is, use a can of gumout and
spray a little around the vacum lines and connections. the engine will
rev up when gumout hits a leak. You can also check the throttle posistion sensor located on the drivers side near the air intake hose.
And you have 3 idle air control solenoids at the firewall side of the manifold. Also check for any broken or loose evap hose they can give
a gas smell as well. If there is anything that I missed in your post, or
there is somthing I wrote that needs to be better explained. Get back to
me here. I will go into it a little more.
I hope I have been of some help. Good luck.
