dunno, maybe you have the vapour lines the wrong way round :P, unfortunatly I wouldn't know which way they should go :(.

I've had a similar problem with my old VN Commonbore, but it would only smell while the car is moving, I never bothered to replace it though, but yours seems worse than what I had....

Check to see if the canister has fuel in it.If it has i would try and remove the fuel or just replace the carbon canister.
