Smell Gas Fumes

1999 Ford Econoline 150 V6............I've been smelling gas lately in and around the van. Doesn't smell in the engine compartment and I don't have a leak. Any thing I should look for? Thanks~~~~~~~~~~~~

What about gas can cap?
What about purge valve not closing fully?

And Ford had some problems with gas tanks; don't know if the Econoline was in the bunch or not, but I know Windstars were. Can't remember if it was a problem of cracking or the seal, but it was on top where the fuel pump is accessed so it was generally more noticeable after filling up.
