    Having a gas smell issue. Not leaking from injectors. Seems like a pressure build up anyone heard of similar issues?

    Seems like multiple areas. When parked after driving about 30 min in hot weather smells like gas towards rear passenger side, but it also smells coming out the vents while driving. Assuming that would be coming from the engine bay. Once parked it doesn't really smell in the engine bay though. After unscrewing the gas cap quite a bit of pressure releases.

    I agree with above. The cannister and evap are the most obvious given the description. If it is unburned fuel that's a little different and you should experience some driving symptoms.
