Try not to eat too much and take care of your business before you get in your car. K? Thanks.

Check the fuel pump under the rear seat. The gasket in the top leaks giving the smell of gas.

Check the fuel lines under the hood. Especially the ones fitted to the injection rail.

I have also had problems with the top of the fuel tank leaking and gas smells. Take a look at that.
