Default Need help- cabin smelling like fuel

Hi guys, I need help. For the past couple of months I've been noticing the cabin smelling like gasoline when I have the air off and windows down. It's especially bad with the sunroof up and with a full tank of fuel. I can't smell anything outside the car. Also nothing if I have the air on and windows/sunroof shut. Any ideas? I'm going to take it in to the dealer soon. Thanks!

Lots of fuel fittings under the hood. Does it stink under there? Mine had a very minor fuel weep under the intake manifold. It happened last summer and only in extremely hot weather but seemed to have self-cured

Just an update. The dealer told me this morning they found a crack in the fuel level sensor housing just beneath the rear seat. Hope to cure the problem soon.
