So my car has always given away that gas smell, but lately the smell is stronger especially when I'm driving and have to slow down I get the smell. Also when I turn it off and walk away and come back a few minutes later it smells a lot like gas. Could this be a leak or something? My car is an 89 maybe someone with the fox body has had this happen and could give me some advice...

Depends on where the fumes seem to come from. It could be a leak or it could just be fumes from the vent getting inside. I would start by tracing the lines from the tank to the motor. I've seen where the o rings on the original metal lines connect to the fuel rails wear out and tend to leak there.... Just a place to start.

Turn it on and follow out the lines or look under and see if you see a leak
having a fine car that is slow is like having a hot girlfriend that won't put out!

Re: gas leak maybe?

Sounds like it may be running a bit rich and you may have an exhaust leak.
