Hi, is the check engine light on in your T&C?
Ok, The long crank might be related to the smell. The next thing I would do is run a fuel pressure and leakdown test. You'd need a fuel pressure gauge to run this test. It should be 60 psi at idle and not drop less than 10 psi after 10 minutes of the key being shut off. If it bleeds off quickly after shutting the engine off, you'd have to start inspecting the fuel line from front to back for a liquid fuel leak. If nothing external if it leaked down, then you'd need a new fuel pump. That would only address the long crank though, not the smell of fuel. Another test that can be run with a scan tool is an ESIM forced monitor test. That will check for medium and large vapor leaks. If there is a vapor leak, it should set the check engine light but if it just happened, it might not have ran it's test and failed to set the light yet.
