Yep, the canister most likely. I damaged the one in my 3rd Gen 4Runner by over-filling the fuel tank and then tipping the rig every which way while wheeling. The charcoal becomes saturated and ruined. What you are smelling is probably fumes from the feedback system, not dripping gas. Hot weather makes it smell worse. I had to replace the canister; then good again. When the gas pump clicks off the first time, stop filling. Only my opinion, for it's worth.
