If the smell source is under the hood area check the braided hose that
crosses between the fuel rails under the air cleaner housing.  That is
another common spot, and a very dangerous one, too.  Don't just look at it.
Run the engine and flex it to see that it does not have a high pressure
squirt leak.  BTDT.
