I've noticed the last few times I've filled up my car, after parking it for awhile, the interior absolutely REEKS of gas. There's also a noticeable gas smell around the back of the car.
First, I don't "top off" the tank, I just let it fill until the pump shuts off on its own. Second, it's normally parked facing uphill in my driveway - it's not as bad if the car is parked on a flat surface, but it's still there.
It's a 99, so it's OBD-2 - and it's not triggering any EVAP system codes. I've also been under the car and there's no signs of a leak, though there is a noticeable gasoline odor near the back. Nothing appears to be damp.
I looked at the FSM, and it looks like the fuel pump has 2 lines going to it, both connected with a section of rubber hose. Am I on the right track in thinking maybe one of those might be leaking? At the moment I'm ruling out the charcoal canister and filler neck, as I'm pretty sure both of those would trigger an evap-related code. Same with the tank itself.
