check your coolant reservoir if your smelling fuel and you don't have an external leak then you probably have an internal leak

that is where the ccv is do you have a hole in the ccv hose or any parts of the ccv? also change your oil and see if that helps this is based on the ccv being right there and if you have a lil fuel in your oil you would smell it if there where holes in there
