could be the filler tube at the top of the tank is leaking. If you smell fuel from the tank / know its leaking, do not drive it. You could risk igniting your tank. Get a mobile mechanic or tow to a repair shop for work. Small price to pay vs your investment catching on fire / filing insurance claim / etc.
