It may be a problem with the charcoal canister in the front. Does the odor get stronger when using like A/C or the vents? Here is a link that can help you in checking it/replacing it.

OK, P0442 is an evaporative leak fault. The gas cap may well have corrected that issue. If you smell gas from the engine area you almost certainly have a fuel leak. You should be very careful - you don't want your car to catch fire and put people's lives in danger. When a car catches fire it goes up very quickly, and if it's near your home....

Look by the fuel injectors and fuel rail for signs of a leak. If you don't see anything there have a professional technician look at it.

Smelling Gas from inside my 2000 Toyota Avalon XLS


the smell of gasoline in the drivers area is a very serious thing.
theres a good chance you have a fuel leak on the engine which could ignite and put you in dire straights.
open the hood and remove the air cleaner, then start the engine and inspect for any fuel leakage.
listen for any popping noises in the engine compartment, if its popping you may have a blown exhaust manifould gasket, you would get gas fumes from this also.
check these items out and let me know
good luck and would appreciate your feedback.
thanks

Strong odor of gasoline in passenger compartment


for sure there is fuel leafing but you have to locate from where, usualy this can happen from a leaking fuel pressure regulator and this can drip on the hot manifold and cause it to boil and smell the whole car secondly the vapor canister could be damaged and cause the same problem

Gasoline odor


Oh yes there is and there is a charcol canister up under the hood that captures the vapors if the canister is full you could smell fuel.
You will need a shop that has a SMOKE MACHINE to find the leak in the evaporative emissions plumbing from the tank to the engine compartment.

Please give me a fixya! Rating if this information is helpful
