Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 7 months ago

usually the rule of thumb is very accurate of if you smell it in the cab it is something under the hood'the odds there is a fuel line at the engine or a fuel injector lightly seeping fuel causing this small i would get it to another shop to inspect for small brown fuel stains at the fuel lines or injectors they should be able to see that sign of a fuel seepage and then know what to replace or fix
