Could be a leaking fuel injector or fuel line.
dangerous to ignore.
Could be a charcoal filter that needs repair

Does it have fresh gas ? Did you run out old gas , if you let gas in for a time it will varnish up , clog fuel system . It will have a funny smell to it .

A hose may have slipped off the vapor canister, not sure where it is but probably on the drivers side somewhere.

there maybe a leak in the fuel line and it is not getting enough pressure any gas (fuel) smells at rear should be check as soon as found. check fuel lines on top of tank, they the first point to split. also at any joint that is metal in the fule line.

Gas smell


Try replacing or removing the filter paper on the bottom of the carbon cannister, This cannister absorbs gas fumes from the engine when it is shut off (Evaporative Emissions Control System), it can get overloaded and cause a gas smell, if it is comming from the cannister you will smell it when you pull it out. The cannister is black plastic about the size of a coffee can with hoses going to it.
