GAS SMELL

1993 toyota camry with 4 cylinder engine. Runs great at 169,000 miles. When I shut the car off, I get a smell of gas that lingers for a few minutes. The smell isnt inside the car but rather from either beneath it or from the rear of the engine compartment. Additionally, im not sure if the smell is there during driving the car as well, but it surely is after I stop. No leaks in the gas lines detected or drips on the ground. Any ideas?

Hows the gas mileage? Have the exhaust system check from the exhaust manifold all the way to the tail pipe.

Not sure there is a vapor return line on that, but I would check it out

Check your charcoal canister for fuel saturation.
