if its that bad don't run it, sounds like bad leak, best to have someone chk. it out. has it been doing this ever sence you bought it? if it has, call the place you bought it at and have them send someone over to look at it., BUT BY NO MEANS DRIVE IT TO THEM. its a potential fire hazard. I know you will smell a hint of gas when you first fill it up, but will usely go's away in short amount of time. fires will start from the fumes and not the liquid. If its that bad you can smell it on your cloths, Its bad.If this is scaring you I'am sorry this just sounds like something that can't be icnored. GET IT CHK.

Have the purge system tested, and the regulator diaphragm looked at. also the lines, especially the quick disconnect lines up near the engine. You smell gas, but as the engine heats up, the gasoline evaporates and you don't see where it is coming from. This is dangerous in any case, not to mention smelly. The regulator is located in back of the engine (on top) near the throttle body. (just underneath it).
Start the car and let it run for a couple of minutes. Stop the car, and using a flashlight and a good retractable mechanic's mirror, take a look for wetness.
if the regulator (a small, flat inch and a half disk attached to the fuel line) is wet. have it replaced right away. The purge system canister can usually be tested by a good mechanic with the right equipment. You and I usually cannot do this ourselves.

Sounds like you have a crack head,if so,you will need another motor.Find a reputable engine installer and have them check the problem out and go from there.

If you are talking about the reservoir that hose is the overflow hose.
Its possible the shop did not release all of the air pockets from the system and some coolant came out with the air bubbles.
The tank should be about half full hot and cold.
