Replaced water pump, now.....

When at a stop, not while driving, I notice a smell of gasoline. The car is not throwing any codes. I will take it back to the shop tomorrow, but wondering if anyone had any ideas.

The cabin air filter pulls from that same area all the fuel lines pass through and under the battery where the cap for the pump and float is.

Also, a friend from this site had a fuel vent unplugged from its quick coupling just in front of the driver's side rear wheel.
