If you can smell it all the time, check if the smell is coming from the engine area or at the rear side. If it's in the engine area, check for leaks. There should be one. Otherwise, that is if the smell is coming from rear side, the fuel pump may have already failed.
Hey George===It depends on what kind of car you have. If it is port injeacted, look closely at the injectors and make sure they aren't leaking. Check the evaporative fuel canister {the can looking thing} and make sure it doesn't have raw fuel in it. Goodluck Joe
