    Cracked fuel lines? Loose fittings? Gas tank leaking all through the car? It could be anything....

    Have you checked your fuel filter? That would be the easy fix, if its clogged it spews fuel out when the car is on. That happened with my '94 Lx.

    i checked the fuel filter, looks fine, also doesnt smell. i was thinking if the fuel filter was bad, wouldnt the engine bay also smell like fuel?

    when I removed my vacuum canister My car would smell like gas, outside that is.
    the only time inside my car smelled like gas is when I changed out my fuel pump and i had the tank open.
