Gas smell

i just started smelling gas when I start my car and the smell seems to go away once I start moving down the road. Iím thinking it might be a gas line leak. Anybody else ever experience this.

Check the fuel connector forward/below the brake fluid reservoir. They can leak if not properly connected. Also start fires. So. You know.

What year? There is this recall to look into.

I've had that before, one of the fuel injector gaskets was leaking. It was a $2 in parts and $200 in labor kind of fix...
