Kavadarci. Your gas smell could very well be caused by a non- functioning fuel return valve. When you shut your engine off, the fuel is supposed to return to your tank. If the membrane is leaking and does not open, you will smell it all over the place. Gas will slowly leak on the tray below your carb and evaporate. Getting a new one from Uncle Benz is costly, about $ 375 can. I rebuilt my own with a cut to size 40mil. home made rubber membrane. It might solve your smelly problem. Perhaps your rebuild guys have the membrane in stock.
