Q: Smell gas on cold start. on 2007 Toyota Corolla

Hello. I just bought 2007 Toyota Corolla LE and am still covered by warranty until May 21,2009. When I start the car in the morning or when it stands for a long time, I smell gas for about 5 or 10 seconds. I put fuel Lucas fuel injection cleaner in thinking this might solve the problem which it didn't. My sister-in-law has a 2006 Corolla and said she has the same problem. What do you think might be the problem and is it just a coincidence that my sister-in-law has the same problem? I'm asking so I'm going to the dealer more enlightened. Could there be any kind of recall because of this problem? Thank you. Daniel Caputa
