Default Help find source of gas smell

Recently I noticed some gas smell around my 93 4 cyl Camry. I had the filler
neck replaced because it had holes and signs of small leaks. But the problem
persists and there is no sign of leaks anywhere. I was thinking about the
top of the gas tank but my mechanic thinks it might be difficult not to
replace parts of or all the exhaust system because it's nearing the end.
Everything looks perfectly dry under the car.

Does anyone here had a similar problem and found its origin?

Had a similar problem w/ my '93 Camry, & it turned out to be a quick fix: when
I filled the tank, somehow the gasoline nozzle knocked the filler neck gasket
askew, leading to the distinct odor. The gasket was starting to age anyway,
and it was replaced.

Hope your problem has an equally 'easy' solution!
