First, do you have a strong smell of gas from the car ... When the engine is running ... Key on, engine off ... or ... all the time?

Do you see puddles of gas under the car?

The fuel has to go somewhere .... Did you look for a fuel puddle while the car was running?

Is the engine idling rough?

Does it seem to have less or no power?

I know you said that you do NOT smell anything, but My thought is that you have a leaky injector that pours fuel in the cylinder all the time. That would make the car run rough and gas smell out of the exhaust while running.

Or he's leaking it on the ground while he's under acceleration. If it was dumping that much gas and trying to burn it, there'd definitely be a stench, and he'd be fogging for skeeters.
