When i put gas in there is a really strong gas smell throughout the car pretty much until it is near empty, and for some reason the gas doesnt last as long as it should. But there is no leak in the tank. Could it be the fuel filter? I just bought the car from a friend and he cant remember last time it was changed.

    It may be numerous items? Check the fuel rail, injectors, fuel filter, lines and gas tank. Any type of fuel leaks may be the problem and needs to be taken care of soon. I would suggest taking it to a shop so they can look at it and trace the problem?
