Smell of gas
My truck smells like gas at the gas cap. I have checked to make sure it is tight, but this has happened after my last 6-7 fill ups.

I had the charcoal canister changed by the dealer (dumb me getting ripped off back then) about 5 years ago.

I don't know if the canister needs changed again, or if it can be another issue?

All gas caps have a check valve built into them so that air can go into the tank but air should not be able to escape from the cap.
The fuel system will pressurize the tank and if your cap is leaking you will smell gas.
