Barring any fuel leaks I would say that your charcoal canister is probably in need of replacement. they can fill up with liquid after some time making them useless and will smell of gas.

Also it may be an exhaust leak if it is not an actual gasoline smell.

Does propane fumes smell like car exhaust fumes?

A "smell" is added to propane the same as a "smell" is added to natural gas. Some people describe it as being like old cabbage. I can attest that it is not pleasant and unless you have very poor sense of smell you will notice it. Don't ignore it if you do. Propane is heavier than air and will lie in a low area and is very combustible.

Can stain fumes kill you?

I posted the question, but have been researching still. I haven't found anything that says that if the fumes are not "DIRECTLY" consumed (like "huffing") the fumes can kill you, but for anyone researching this, some answers that have helped is that heat, candles, and dryness can help the smell. I am currently trying the candle method.
