Occasionally when driving the car there will be a very strong smell of gas. It appears to happen more frequently when the ambient temperature is over 95 degrees. The vapors fill the passenger compartment and it can be smelled outside of the car as well. There does not seem to be a visible gasoline leak. There is not a gas puddle or trail on the ground and I don't see any visible signs of gas in the engine compartment.

Check the fuel rail and lines for any possible leak. Also see if you fuel injectors are properly seated to the engine heads.
