If you are smelling gasoline in the cabin, it's a fuel leak in the engine compartment. How's your MPG"s? It could be a bad fuel pressure regulator. It could also be a leaking hose.

If it were the carbon canister, there would be evaporative errors and CEL would appear with an error of that nature....think you have a small fuel leak at the intake plenum...possibly an intake gasket~
