The weird thing is that it doesn't do it all the time. There's some days when I'll drive all the way to work and won't smell any gas and then other days where you just can't breathe.
let it idle.
pull a plug.
is plug black then its rich.
if rich the new pump may be overpowering carb as others said.
verify there are no loose vent lines or leaks.
