    Hi,

    I have a 91 Legacy L 4wd. I'm smelling gas with a full tank but once under
    3/4 tank it goes away, sounds like a leak to me. From the looks of it I'll
    have to drop the whole rear end in order to get at the tank, any other
    suggestions?

    I'm not familiar with your car model, but in general,
    I'd check the emission systems and particularly the
    charcoal canister before I went through the hell of
    pulling the gas tank.

    Right on Jim as there are lots of hoses and connections on the tank,
    charcoal canister and purge lines. ed

    is there a hose connecting the filler neck attached to the body and the
    tank itself? This would seem more likely to leak than the tank itself.
