Hey guys (and gals), what would cause my '65 110 4 speed convertible to smell of gas after shutdown.  We had the heater on and left the controls in the on position while we were parked at Sonic for our Saturday pleasure drive.  The smell went away after we started driving and I shut the heater off.  I didn't see any gas around the carbs or engine compartment connections and I checked the oil to see if the fuel pump was failed but no.  I was thinking of pulling the tunnel pans since the heater duct runs thru there with the gas line but it's solid so unless it's rusting it shouldn't be leaking.  We kept smelling it in the car but when I got out and popped the hood I didn't smell it in the engine compartment and like I said, I didn't see any leaks.  

Help me Obiwan Kanobi, you're my only hope....
