gas fumes in cabin

ive been smelling gas fumes inside my jeep maybe since the last time i filled up a couple days ago. the fumes are only in the back. the only thing i can think of is i screwed down some angle iron in the trunk for bungie cords and maybe the screws punctured the tank? im only using 1 or 1.25in long screws. i recently relocated the angle iron to make room for a 2nd sub which was maybe a little more than a week ago and i never smelled the fumes until now. i havent had any gas cans in the back recently, either. any thoughts?

Unless the filler neck is messed up, I think you may have answered you own question.

You should have your Jeep taken to a service center where they can drop the tank and inspect it for punctures or leaks. If the tank is fine, I would agree with ZeeJay1997 on the filler neck.

well my worries are that the bolts holding the tank are so rusted i may not be able to get it back in place. plus i have to wait until my tank is nearly empty.
