What could be the cause of gas smell inside the car? I don't overfill the tank and it lasts about 2, may be 3 days. This happens only when I pump gas and never spill it where it would be obvious that it stinks. Volvo Owners, is this a common problem?

I have had a volvo for about 14 months now (88-240GL) and i've noticed, every once in a while when I filled up, the gas smell)
*On my jeep it was caused by a bad fuel injector leaking. May want to check those.
