Because gasoline is a highly voitile substance, even tiny amounts will create a strong odor. If your car has fuel injection, then the fuel is pumped into the fuel rail at high pressure. A tiny leak can create the odor you are noticing. The best way to find it, I think, is to open the hood while the engine is running, and check around the fuel injector components for any sign of a leak. Then, if you have not found it yet, shut the engine off, and stand in front of the car and listen for any noise which might be associated with a fuel leak. Look carefully around the injectors, and the fuel rail. Watch especially for any area which looks unusually clean, as gasoline will disolve most grease and oil.
