Annoying Gas Smell

    Have you inspected your fuel lines and connections in the engine compartment closely? A small leak anywhere can cause the smell. With a non-EFI system, a mechanical fuel pump can easily leak around a crimp flange on the body of the pump as well as the two connectors. While not applicable to your situation, it's an example of what you should look for. A mechanic with a good hydrocarbon sniffer can help out tremendously in finding a small fuel leak.

    A match is a much simpler tool for finding a fuel leak too. Don't use a match.

    Yes did that all. I have all new braided fuel lines installed.

    When I ran all new braided fuel lines for my EFI conversion, they wept vapor from day one.
    Swapped to teflon lined hose ..... no more fumes.
