Horrible Gas odor

Smelling gas after fill up. Not sure what causes this or what may need to be done.

well assuming this is for your cls as that is the car in your avatar, the cause is either a leaking fuel pump seal or a leaking gas tank. very common on the CLS. pull the rear seat cushion and fuel pump covers and inspect.

Don't park in the enclosed garage. When the fume builds up, a spark from the electrical light switch in the garage can ignite it.
Park it outside until the leak is fixed.
