gas smell inside after parking overnight

My 97 E320 wagon now smells strongly of gas inside after being parked overnight or over a weekend. No drips visible on floor or visible in engine compartment, and smell clears after five minutes of driving. Gas cap was new a couple of years ago. Haven't checked tank vent - where should I look?
