You may want to pull off the plastic engine cover and look where the injectors meets the head. Or look up "black death" a fuel leak issue with 05/06 CDIs. I understand you smell it from the rear of the vehicle but a quick check there would not hurt and maybe save you some agony if you catch that in it's early stage even if its not the cause of the fuel smell.
