This is a new car and under warranty. The dealer needs to fix this rather serious issue. DO NOT DRIVE THIS CAR! It is possible it can catch on fire. Call the dealer, tell them your problem, that you will not drive the car and that it needs a tow. Work it out with them. Fuel leaks are dangerous and can cause fires. Good luck

I do not know what petroleum gas smells like, but i just bought a 2012 Camry SE and once the car is parked in my garage I'm sure I smell SOMETHING but I dont know what it is. I thought it was from just driving it and it cooling in my closed garage. I dont want to get too alarmed by it but if its a serious issue I definitely want to get it fixed
