Is it possible the fuel fumes catch system (whatever that is for the Porsche) could be failing and you are smelling that? I know many vehicles strongly warn about overfilling the car and I know there is a system to protect the environment by catching fumes from the tank. Could this system be compromised somehow?

Yes, I am taking it in to get a check out and switch out my fuel pump, venturi tubes and tank gaskets this coming Saturday.

Isthisforeal is an unknown quantity at this point
Had this issue on my 996tt which did eventually pop a code. My issue was the fuel pump cap had cracked/melted from the wire having resistance the fuel pump is located under your front trunk might be worth a try to whiff around there when you smell the fuel.

i ended up cleaning the wires and using jb weld to fix the crack on the pump lid. Its been over a year without issue

Yeah I just recently replaced my fuel pump and venturi tubes along with the cap and sealing ring....only to find out after the fact that my manifold bolts had backed out a bit causing an exhaust leak (and gas smells).
