Hmm? I'm having flashbacks about an old company car I used to have...At the time it was a new '00 Grand Prix. It had a fuel smell all the time (for a few days) ..turned out it was the fuel tank itself that needed to be re-attached! In your case, it could be something as simple as the gas cap..or maybe the exhaust system. Have it checked out by a reputable mechanic ASAP!
