: aside from the obvious leaking fuel line, it smells (sounds) like a leaky injector. Does your car start up real quick, like you shot xtra fuel directly into the cylinders? Usually a quick start and a fuel smell is a leaky injector, it causing a small flood condition overnight. U might want to look at an inj. leak-down test to be sure.
:check the small segment of rubber fuel line in the fuel rail along the left side of the engine.I have replaced mine twice due to fuel leakage
