When I drive my car smells like gasoline

Yesterday when I drove out of the gas station I smelled gasoline, today that I drove to work my baby girl smelled like gasoline still, I don't know what the issue might be.


Can anyone give me some help?

If it's something minor id like to do it myself, let me know what you guys might think the problem can be.

New, old Mercedes and REAL AMG's.
Did you notice you topped of the tank "too much"?

It could also be fuel tank seal getting old.

Interesting to see what others have to say.

The last time that happened to me it was the fuel pump starting to let go. How many miles is on your car?

The old Mazda RX-7s used to blow the fuel pump exactly at 50,000 miles...mine went at 50,003
