"After a fill-up" ok- the problem is that you are filling your car all the way to the top of the filler tube- try stopping before the gas comes spilling out the opening- do not use the "automatic" shut off on the nozzle- gasoline is toxic and you don't want to be breathing that stuff- but fill it by hand with your face upwind- stop when you hear the first "click"- better yet, just fill the tank 3/4 full as a matter of habit- where are you going? on a long trip? why fill it every time? Unless you have a fuel leak, these suggestions should get rid of the smell-
