The battery and the main power distribution box is all right in that area. So, that makes it hard to tell you without more information.

You will have to determine if it is fuel you do not have or a no spark problem.

When the key is turned to run position after it has been off for 10 seconds do you hear a prime cycle (fuel pump whirr noise ) at the gas tank for about 2 seconds?
If you DO hear this you most likely have fuel pressure.
If you do NOT hear this and have just changed the fuel pump with a known working good pump....it may be the fuel relay.
And remember...new pumps can be bad.

If you DO hear the whirr........perhaps you do not have spark at the plugs.
Do you have a spare spark plug?
Disconnect one of the plug wires and insert the spark plug you now have.....make sure the plug body is touching metal....(grounded ) and crank the engine....we want to see a spark jumping across the spark plug gap.
No spark?
Then check for these defective parts and chances are ........50% Ignition module.......30% crank pick up........10% coil........10% other (connections.....computer......anti theft....etc )

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Lumina with the 3.8L engine. In 2009 I also smelled fuel when I drove my car. My leak was located at the fuel rail output connector. Chev house said I had to replace the entire fuel line all the way back to the tank. Say what? I easily fixed the problem by installing a NAPA #7304922 3/8" Nylon Fuel Line Retainer (repair kit - $25).
