No signs of a leak anywhere? Injectors may be leaking, or fuel rail. You may also have a problem with the EVAP system. If you have leaks in the fuel injection you may be setting codes, have them read and reply back.

Its great hearing all the excuses when a facility is to lazy or incompetent to locate a vehicle problem... maybe your driving it from east to west instead of north to south as it was designed to be! I suggest you begin by scanning it for DTC codes as mentioned EVAP (maybe) and inspect it closely for fuel leaks.
