I also have a fuel "smell" in the car; I've had it for awhile.  Since I
installed new fuel injectors and fuel filter, I've developed a leak near
the passenger front door.  I'm hoping it's just something loose from the
filter (the injectors took a lot of time to get to not leak, so I don't
think that's the source).
