Check the evaporative canister under the hood for raw fuel. It is that black can with vacuum and wires running to the top. Good answer above. If you fill the tank and smell it, but it goes away after the fuel level goes down, you could have a leak where the fill tube joins the tank. There could even be a leak in the tank itself. Ran across that one a few years ago in a 2001 Chevy Caprice...couldn't find the leak anywhere until the tank was removed, filled with water, then flexed...the leak was at the top of the tank.
