I need help. Yesterday i filled up my gas tank and drove about 20 miles parked it. When i went back to drive it, inside the car had a very strong smell of GAS fumes. I had checked to see if i had a leak anywhere in the gas line under the car and under the hood didn't see any. Any inputs as to what can be the problems? thanks.

The distributor cap vents into the cab, you are possibly getting something kicked back into the car. Someone else should chime in with more details. Or you can do a search. I think Trapper50Cal had this problem recently...

Pull the side panel in the cargo area on the passenger side. See if the gas is leaking from the vent dealy back there.
