    Sounds like a fuel leak to me. Maybe a leaky FPR, but that should be leaking internally and thus running very rich (still worth checking).

    Just replaced fuel pump and now you smell fuel? I'd assume it's a problem with the install. Could be a number of things - cracked plastic fuel line, torn seal at the top of the tank, rusted filler or vent pipe that was disturbed when the tank was removed, etc... Poke around with your nose in the area of the tank and fuel lines, and you may find your problem

    I missed that "just replaced fuel pump" part. Yeah, go back and check your work.
