You've got a fuel leak. use your nose to find out where. use a hose to find out where.

Every time I see a question when folks say the 'smell gas bad', I feel compelled to warn you about the risks of fire. I have experienced 3 vehicles fires personally, one of which was because of my own stupidity with ATF, other two gasoline. As Bob correctly pointed out, you have a leak and /or your charcoal canister is saturated and needs to be purged or replaced. Please use extreme caution, do your repairs when engine is cold

Is your "check engine" light on? If so, what code(s) do you have?
