One of the artifacts of installing a Weber is that you will occasionally get a whiff of gasoline - the float bowl vent on DGV's is just a hole in the top of the carb so without modification to the carb you always have fresh fuel present under the hood. Also most people disconnect the canister and leave the fuel tank vent line (the one next to the fuel supply line on the firewall) open to the atmosphere.

Ah, a clue, but I don't know what tank you have. This is a possibility.
One Justy I had did the same thing, and it starts at the parting seam, with no leaks. Eventually you'll see signs down the sides of the tank.
I pulled my "good" tank to get it prepped. After I cleaned the corrosion off that seam, I had pinholes.

A temporary fix, until you can source a replacement tank, is to use some Seals All.
Drop your tank, (fun job), clean the area of leakage, coat it with the Seals All, re-install tank.
Seals All will stop a flowing leak in a gas tank up to an 1/8" diameter hole. One can use something for a plug for larger holes. Good stuff to have on hand when you're off-roading. I have had the need of using it, many times.
Should be able to find it anywhere they sell stuff like RTV, and simular products. My local parts store has it, WalMart carries it in the automotive department.
