fuel consumption on 1996 Toyota Corolla

When you start the car there is alot of smell of petrol.
What could be wrong?

Any time you have a large fuel odor, one worries of a leak - either under the hood or under the vehicle. It can be fuel consumption due to a leaking injector or an air / fuel mixture issue. All need inspected by a qualified technician...as soon as possible.
Thanxs for the suggestion but there are no apparent leaks,but i will have it checked by a technician asap.
