Sounds like you have a leak somewhere you can add some fuel dye and get a dye light and find the leak that way.

Yes all the fuel filter filters the fuel coming from the take like the air filter filters the air coming into the engine. If it smells like a leak unless the fuel filter is leaking then I dint know how replacing it would stop that smell.I would try out the fuel dye and the light.
