Smells problem
2002 Chrysler Grand Voyager 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles

When I start my car, after it's been sitting awhile, like overnight or all day at work, the smell of gas is very strong inside the car. It does not appear to be leaking anywhere, i.E; gas level does not drop, no leakage on the driveway. After about 10 minutes it goes away, and if I do a lot of short driving it doesn't smell, only after it sits a long per. Of time. But the smell is very strong.

Get the evaporative control system checked-Charcoal Canister could be saturated with fuel, If not maybe a rich condition

Possible causes include a bad O2 sensor, excessive fuel pressure (bad fuel pressure regulator or plugged return line), leaky fuel injectors, dirty air filter or restricted air inlet, or a defective coolant sensor that prevents the engine management system from going into closed loop mode.
