I have a fuel smell in my garage only after a complete fill up.  I checked the fuel pump seal under the rear seat, all is well there.  It actually seems that the smell is coming from the drivers side just behind the front tire.  I did check the fuel line and rails on the top side and all is well there as well.  The smell in the garage goes away after burning off about 3 gallons of fuel from the full tank.  


I know you said the smells comes from the driver side behind the front tire, but have you checked the fuel tank filler neck? I am suggesting this becasue you mentioned that the smell goes away after burning 3 gallons.

I found the leak, it’s the gasket on the sending unit under the rear seat.   New one coming today, thankfully a simple fix.  Removing the cover that is sealed to the floor to access the unit is not an easy jog though!
