Question about 2008 Hyundai Accent
On my 2002 I had the same problem and was caused by the evap system (emissions). The module is located in the back of the car, tucked up right by the back fender-pannel by the fuel filler tube.

I had this happen. On mine it was related to the evap system (emissions) and mostly happened when I filled up with gas.

Remove the vacuum hose from the fuel pressure regulator have some one turn the key on but dont start the car if gas leaks out the regulator is bad.

when you look for a fuel leak, make sure the engine is running. the fuel lines will be pressurized and you are more likely to spot the leak. if you see fuel squirting, be careful since it under a lot of pressure. it might look like a single strand of a spider web. also, you should wear eye protection since gas in the eye would be a bad thing. needless to say, don't light a match or lighter for light to find the fuel leak. since gas is explosive, you probably should take it to a shop if you can't fix it. it could be dangerous if gas drips on a hot part. fuel vapors are explosive too.

I would definatly recheck the regulator to make certain you do not have any leaks.
But to be clear, you are smelling gas and not exhaust?
Also, is you cowl seal in good shape, not missing or damaged in any way?
Let me know.

SOURCE: gas smell inside a car
I have the same gas smell problme too esepcially in cold days. There are a few piece of rubber hoses connecting to 2-3 sections of fuel injection metal tubes. Get a long and thin fillip screw driver and tighten those clamp screws on the rubber hoses.
