WHAT COULD BE CAUSING STRONG GAS SMELLS IN CAR

1996 Nissan Maxima • 3.0L V6 FWD Automatic • 110,000 miles

I have been having a problem with my car for a few months now. I though it was bad gas so I ran all the gas out and used fuel stabilized to clean out what may have been there. I run fine no problem. When the car sits for a few hours the gas smell get really strong coming from the car and in the cab itself.

I have check under the hood to see if anything is leaking. I have not seen anything. My care was at the mechanics two weeks ago and all checked out fine. I don't see anything on the ground leaking. It's smell like it is coming from the front of the car. When you turn the heat on the fuse are very strong.

Your thoughts are greatly appreciated. I have limited driving the car to be safe.
