Gas smell

Hey guys, I've always had a faint gas smell in my car whenever i start it or i idle and don't move. My girlfriend brought it to my attention that it may be getting stronger. Is there anything i should check out? I have the rear seat delete so my thoughts were i was just running rich and it was coming through the trunk some how. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks.

well the components that filter the particulates and smell are gone I wonder where the smell is coming from.

but seriously its either the cats missing, a fuel leak or an evap issue, do you have any codes?

if it isn't leaking then who cares lol the smell wont hurt. Maybe pull the seat delete out and put some sound deadener or poly fil to maybe help with both cab drone and smell.


when im idling and racing I spit raw fuel out of my tailpipes lol 60lb injectors ftw
