Also might want to check the fuel lines that run between the body and tank on the drivers' side. Might be rubbing a hole on one. Had that happen on a 96 Cougar.

Sound like a fuel rail leak or a leaky injector, considering underhood air is causing the smell. Do you have any trouble starting the car. Could be a bad fuel filter, rusted through.
