I know this may seem odd but..

Lubricate your filler cap and the seat @ your fuel entry point.. Can be with spit lightly smeared around or a fuel safe lubricant as I have found that I to was getting fuel smells in the car but after this I've never smelt it again.. More than likely to be the above :p

Could be an injector o ring leak. Take the engine cover off and have a look around there afeter you notice the petrol smell

usually happens on hot days when u have the air con on. all u gotta do is loosen the pressure out of the fuel cap.
