If you can smell it in your car i bet you need a gas tank. There are several nipples on the top of the tank that can break off and cause a large evap leak. It usually gets worse over time, read my sticky. I believe there is a recall for it now, ask the dealer if your car applies, i think it does.

Well that recall isn't what im talking about. If you notice you smell the gas more after you just fill it or notice a small puddle of gas under the car after filling it you most likely need an entire gas tank.......which would really suck. To diagnose it you need to remove the ENTIRE rear end from the car just to get the gas tank down.
