    The check engine light is trying to tell you that there's a problem detected with engine and emission control system and trouble codes are stored in the engine controller. The fumes must be raw gasoline which would indicate a fuel leak. You need a mechanic with a scanner to read the trouble codes and find the fuel leak. The fuel leak especially is a safety issue.
