Question Gasoline Odor in Cab when engine is cold

I have been noticing an odor of gasoline in the cab (windows up, fan on) occasionally when I crank my 2000 Frontier 2.4L for the first time each day. I have looked under the hood and I have not found evidence of a gasoline leak. The odor will dissipate after driving 2-3 miles and it will not return until another "cold" crank on another day. I figure it has to be either the fuel supply to the engine or the EVAP system. I have no trouble codes to help me find the source of this gasoline smell. Have any of you had a similar problem?

Thanks

Default Problem Solved

I found that after changing my fuel filter 6 months ago, the 4 clamps on the 2 rubber connector hoses needed to be re-tightened.
