there was a recall done on this car as i had one. problem with fuel filler hose. take to dealership. done for free. if this has been done then u need to check the rubber fuel hoses as they tend to go bad. i had to replace a few of those two. third possibility is bad fuel injectors that are leaking. dont wait. dangerous. Have your gas line checked. It could have a small hole in it. I had the same problem with my car. The gas line was cracking. I change the gas line, the smell went away.

We had a similar issue. We replaced the gas cap and the fuel filter. The smell was still there. A small puddle was discovered only after parking it over night. We replaced two fuel lines underneath the brake cylinder area.
Cause the gas tank houses the (prepare yourself for this one) gas!
