My 95 jetta has a heavy gas smell inside and outside even after i turned it off and it is giving me trouble to start it. It almost seems like it is flooded but it is not. I do not see any resemblances of leaks under the car. It is also giving me trouble when I try to start it on.

If you smell it, there is a leak, it might just be evaporating. Don't play around with fuel leaks, you don't want t a fire. It could be a vent line, but I'd have it looked at ASAP.
