Yeah worth pulling over and inspecting when you smell it, you dont want fuel near heat, like a hose leaking onto your headers for example. The fuel system is just really the tank inc filler tube and cap, lines, filters, pump, carb.

Check your trunk, I had the same problem and upon inspection found gas in my trunk. Someone apparently thought it was a good idea to to pop rivet a patch panel i the trunk problem is they drilled 6 holes into the top of the gas tank. Anyway, check there if nothing obvious in the front.
