520 1978 Carburated Need Help

My 520 smells alot like gas when 3 or more people sit in it. Have you guys ever had this problem? It smells more towards the back but it's not all the time. Any thoughts?

Could weight on the back seat be putting pressure on the fuel tank?

I think I'd start by checking under the back seat to see the condition of any inspection port the tank may have.
