Fuel smell after fuel pump install

Hey guys I have a 2012 gti 6spd manual. I recently changed my in tank fuel pump about a week ago... and Iíve been experiencing a strong gas smell after pumping gas in my car and the car is running fine.. thereís no rough idling or anything.. so Iím pretty lost on this.. just wondering if anyone knows what I could possibly do to get rid of the smell or anything?

When you replaced the in tank pump, did you also use a new rubber gasket or did you re-use the old one? Because if you used the old one, that's most likely the culprit. Either that, or you didn't seat the new one properly.

I had this happen to me too; my new pump arrived but the gasket got lost in shipping. I ordered a new one but used the old one in the meantime and it never sealed well...I smelled gas all the time until the new gasket came and I put it in.
