I've seen a few posts on here but no real resolution so I thought I'd post my issue and see if anyone can help. I've been getting gas smell coming through the air vents when driving. When outside the car the smell is more prominent on the driver's side by the front wheel.

Web searches suggested it was a leak at the fuel rail / fuel injectors. Yesterday, I removed the plastic shroud from the top of the engine and looked at the rails/injectors but I didn't see any obvious signs.

I looked again this morning and found the culprit. There's a leak where the black rubber fuel line and the blue plastic fuel line meet. See photos

take the line apart and put some Dow Corning 111 on the O ring then put it back together.
the DC111 will keep the O rings soft Amazon sells it.

NOTE dont keep driving with this leaking as you could start a fire,
if the DC111 doesnt work then get a new fuel line and use it on the new line.

Did you find a fix for this? My 2012 RR Sport just started having these exact issues.
