My daughter has and RX8, which she loves very much. The smell of raw fuel emanating from under the passenger compartment. The E-vap system seems to be intact and working as it should.

RE: The smell of raw fuel emanating from under the passenger compartment of an RX8?
I presume the question is along the lines of what to look for.

If there's no CEL showing on the dash that means it's not the tank or anything close to it, so likely a small leak (drip?) on the pressure side of the fuel pump. It only takes one drop to make a smell. I'd follow the fuel lines and see what's up. Could be a rusty section in a steel line or a dry rotted section in a rubber line.

Let us know what you find.
