Gas Smell

After sitting overnight in the garage there is a strong smell of gas near the back of my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I’ve tried a new gas cap and had it checked for a vapor leak. The smell is worse with a full tank. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a leak. A shop with a lift and a hydrocarbon sniffer can track it down.
