Gas Fumes.....

I too am experiencing gas fumes inside my Benz but only if the sunroof is opened (either flipped up or slid back). It is more noticeable after making a left turn or sharp left curve when the tank is half full or more. I've been under the hood, checked the fuel pump/filter area under the boot (trunk), and it has a good gas cap seal. Any more places to look anyone?? I LOVE riding with "the top down" but can't for very long due to this.
1991 300SE (my ride, 279,000 miles, looks almost new
1954 Cadillac (21 yo son's car, he bought when age 15)
1972 SeaBird 19 ft runabout (old but solid, slant six, Volvo sterndrive perfect condition, undergoing complete overhaul and refit)
1998 Toyota Rav4 (my sons daily driver when he is in the Continental US, PROUDLY serving in US Navy)
