Need advice on how to fix gas smell coming from my 1978 FJ40. I don’t see any leaks but Ivhave to leave my garage door open because the smell of gas is so bad. Any idea what the issue may be? It doesn’t have a charcoal canister, would this make a difference? Appreciate any advice on where to begin. Thanks.

if you don;t have this still hooked up ?

YOU NEED ONE hooked up , can absolutely cause major gas smell if removed by someone ?

My smell came from the fuel line between the seats.
