1993 BMW 318i Question: smelling gas

when i startmy car i'm smelling gas inside can some one give me an idea of what can cause this..and whats the fix ............. -
Answer 1
if the smell is strong only inside the car, i would first check the seals on the fuel sending units under the rear seat. there are two; be sure to check both. if the smell is stronger outside the car, the possibilities are many: leaking fuel hose somewhere, punctured fuel tank, leaking injector and so on. leaking gasoline is nothing to play around with; get this fixed as soon as possible. think of your BMW engulfed in flames.....while driving. -
Answer 2
I had the same problem under the rear seat one of the hose camps was broken on the fuel pump. -
