Strong fuel smell after filling gas tank

2006 CLS with about 85K Miles. Everytime I fill up the car there is a strong gas smell in the car and causes the garage to smell like gasoline as well. Goes away after a couple days of driving. Does anyone have an idea of what it can possibly be? EDIT: I'm not over filling and spilling gas anywhere and no visible leaks in the garage.
