    Are you running any fuel regulator? Check at all of the fuel lining from petrol tank all way to fuel rail. Torn hoses are possible cause.

    If hoses not good, then will leak all the time, not only when off the engine, right?

    I once had a loose clip around my regulator, it did not leak every moment though.

    Then have to check. I once had a leak, but very very small but still can smell. Upon checking one part of the hose was starting to crack and if bent it the leak becomes more.....
