When tank is full there is a smell of raw fuel, also after driving awhile even if fuel level is low there still is a smell of fuel but not as srong.

That would mean that you have a leak somewhere. You may have to drop the tank to inspect the lines and hoses in that area.

Just to add to this one I would get some gasoline dye add it to the tank then get a dye light to trace the leak back to its source. On that car the fuel pump modules like to leak right where the nipple comes off of the module where the fuel lines go on.
