The plastic cover on the filler is what causes the problem as it traps dirt against the filler neck. Just leave it off of the replacement.

However, there are probably 37894 different emmissions/charcoal canister/solenoid pipes running under the vehicle too that could rust out.
I had that same smell, and I did sniffing through some plastic tubing to find where it was on the filler pipe on my '96, and it pretty much fixed it, but I can still smell fuel around it from somewhere if it's in the garage, definitely from one of those many many emmissions lines.
Fortunately on '96 you only have to be able to get it to start without the CEL on to pass, since it has a convenient flaw about the I/M's resetting on every start.

IIR over 100 at dealer, someone lists redone ones with warranty on Ebay for about the same price.
DON'T install plastic protector on replacement.
