If you have gas leaking, i would think that the intake gasket did not take.Did they replace with new intake gasket?

Maybe the fuel injectors or fuel rail aren't seated properly from removing?

I agree with Tom on this one. A damaged O-ring or something with the fuel rail or the injectors. You need to get this repaired ASAP or it may burn to the ground.
