If you spilled some of the gas into the opening of the fuel door area, the black boot may have been leaking a little. This boot keeps fuel from spilling into the trunk if an overflow happens. I would check the boot and the fuel cap seal.
This happened to my sister in her 300 e and it was the cap, it was not installed correctly (duhh).
