It's quite possible you've got worn o-rings on the fuel injectors, which would allow some fuel to escape and cause an odor, but perhaps not a visible leak.

check the fuel lines that go across the engine when they get hot they expand a little and give you a fuel smell,I nwould suggest replacing them

check the fuel line clamps on the soft parts, they get loose overtime and leak even if it doesnt look like it.
