It happened to me about a year ago. Haven't smelt gas fumes in a long time now. I think I filled my evap canister with raw gas.

I do remember when i had the fuel pump out that the rubber gasket was bigger than the hole could that be why i smell the gas and also i filled my tank for a trip to penn state and gas started leaking from under the car and it looks like it was coming from the top of the tank
