Might sound stupid but tighten up your fuel cap more, give it a full turn after it starts to click... Apparently the o-ring on it ain't too great, and somehow it causes the fuel vapour to circulate back into your car. This happened to me last week and I absolutely packed it. Tightened up the fuel cap an extra turn and hasn't been a problem since!
