2003 Ford Taurus is emitting a gasoline smell after the car is turned off. Any ideas?

Do you still hear the fuel pump running when off? You might hear it better with the gas cap off.

Have you looked for fuel squirting/ running onto the engine or ground?

If you are sorta lost with vehicles, send us a pic of where you find a problem--distant and closer in, with good descriptions

When you search, use a flashlight, NOT! Your cigarette lighter! You also may want to keep a fire extinguisher handy while you search!
