22re Strong gas smell

Hey guys i just started to randomly get a very rich smelling truck. I don't smell any fuel inside but If I have my windows rolled down my goodness does it smell. When I do a walk around the car I smell the fuel the most on the passenger side around the gas cap. I checked the cap and it is still keeping pressure. Also I don't see any noticeable gas leak on the floor or under the truck and no smell under the hood. Any thoughts?

Obviously you should use weaker smelling gas.

Seriously, you should have a vented gas cap. If it's venting alot of vapor however, you might check your Evap emmisions system.

The gas cap does not vent pressure.

Weaker smelling gas? It might not be good for your health to smell your gas too much man.

x2 what BMcEL said. Also if you're smelling it around the fuel tank, maybe there is a small leak somewhere that's letting pressure out enough to vent the fumes but not leak?
