1998 Contour with strange gas smell at times...

Good Evening,

I have a 1998 contour that kicks out a gasoline smell into the vehicle on
occasion. It seems to occur when the car has been sitting for a while.

It's not too strong, but very noticable at times, to the point that I
hesitate driving it for long periods of time...


Anyone having similar issues?

It started doing this when we moved from Okalhoma to Florida... could higher
heat / humidity cause issues with the charcoal filter, making it not work
properly? \

How would fuel vapors make it to the inside of the vehicle?

Could the vapors flow out of the truck space via the vents near the back
window?

mmmmm
