I have an 08 equinox, it had a strong fuel smell I just
changed the fuel injectors and I don't find any
leaks. What could be causing the smell

There is a fuel charcoal canister next to the gas tank under the car that can be filled with gas and needs to be changed

Fill your SUV up with gas park it on a slant look under the gas tank see if it's leaking gas there is a recall on the Equinox fuel pumps there's a bad seal mine was covered I have a 2008 as well
