Gasoline odor - driver side, rear, of 94 Camry V6 XLE

Asked by Nov 08, 2015 at 10:08 PM about the 1994 Toyota Camry XLE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The odor of gas has been intermittent on the Driver's side (only) of my 94 Camry V6 XLE. It is worse near the rear of the car. NO odor under the hood.
Over the past year, it has gotten more constant. It is worse when the car is low on fuel. Sometimes it is noticeable in the cabin. No rust on the car, it is southern. Mechanic could not see any leaks, and did not want to risk making a worse problem taking apart such an old car without a specific problem in mind to fix. An ASE certified garage said they would have to smoke the fuel system to trace the odor. They could not find an obvious problem either. Ideas?

The smoke idea is a good idea, they can detect the smallest leak. Also have them look at the emissions system...

Which side of this vehicle is the gas cap located? Is the Check Engine Light ON when The engine is running?
