Hey, I have a 2002 Honda civic Lx and recently my car started to smell like gasoline and not too sure what's the problem. I'm thinking it's the fuel line or fuel injectors. No leaks has been found and I'm clueless looking for help!

Start with the gas tank cap, inspect it for damage on the seal, but often the internal vent can go bad and let fumes out. Also check for leaks around the gas fill tube, fuel lines, and around the tank. Beyond that may require a professional using a smoke machine and dealer scan tool if it's in the evap system.

I'll try that. Also the smell is coming from the gas tank area.

Pop the hood and start it up and look for drips. I found my leak that way. Mine would only leak in cold weather when the engine was cold.
