'95 GT vert. Bone stock other than flowmaster mufflers. There is a strong gas smell from the rear of the car after I shut it off. There is no smell in the engine compartment, so I figure it isn't the charcoal canister. I haven't put gas in it for a few days, although the smell is stronger near the passenger rear. No smell in the interior. I do have a couple of golf ball sized holes in the mufflers, but the smell seems to be well behind that area. No CEL. Runs pretty well, other than the strong gasoline smell. Not terrible gas mileage.

Any thoughts on what this is? Gas leak?

Look under your rear passenger tire well and see if it is leaking like this or if it is corroded.
