Default fuel odor - 99 accord

i'm thinking its either the fuel pump or fuel filter. and i've been told
that its one of those. when im driving (sometimes) i smell gas. sometimes
i don't. so most likely it's still a minor problem. anyone with info let
me know what's up. thanks in advance.

====================

Just get a GOOD flashlight and start by looking around the injectors
when it's just been shut off. They shouldn't look wet, unless the
seal(s) or body are leaking.

I suggest that you keep the engine running and open the hood. See if you
can see gasoline leaking. I agree that it could be the fuel pump or fuel
filter. Check both of those parts to determine if you can see the gasoline
leaking.

Is your 99 a V6? I have a '00 V6 that has an occasional raw gas odor. We
thought we had it traced down to the injectors, but so far, no gas
visible, only the odor/vapor. Have replaced the O rings on the injectors
hoping for a cheap fix, but no luck. seems to most often occur a few
minutes after initial start-up. let me know if you figure yours' out.
