You have a leak somewhere, either a hose, a metal fuel line, or at any of the connections/gaskets. It could be in around the gas tank, or along the lines going to the engine. If you smell it inside the engine bay, it could be a leaky injector or the fuel rail. Have it check out ASAP.

your didnt say if your car is a 6 cyl of a 4 cyl., if not injectors then possibly pulsation dampner at end of fuel injection rail most likely injectors look by valve cover and smell for stronger smell of raw fuel, then look for wet injector or injectors, then replace before it catches on fire!!

Check the charcoal canister. If it is bad it will cause pressure in the tank. It can build enough pressure to crack the tank or cause a leak at a hose.
