Fuel Smell Coming from pass rear wheel

I have noticed a pronounced fuel odor coming from the passenger rear wheel and intake when the engine is warm in my 2001 non-s boxster. I haven't looked in my bentley manual or waynes book yet but has anyone else ever had this issue before? I tried the search but came up somewhat empty.

Recently had to deal with a similar problem, but at the front. Another member suggested I review this:

http://986forum.com/forums/general-discussions/31476-gas-smell.html. It seems similar to your problem.

Good luck. As was pointed out to me, not a good idea to mess around with fuel issues.
