Faint Gas Smell Inside Car

Hi All,

I have noticed a faint gas smell inside the car at times. Mainly in the morning just after I start it.

Any ideas?

I haven't had any performance issues or check engine light issues.

1998 540i 6 Spd.

gas oil leaks in the engine bay; or maybe a broken EVAP line
