Default 02 F4I strong gas smell in garage

I just picked up a 2002 F4i and have noticed that it is making my garage have a strong gas odor.

I don't notice it at all while driving it over the past two days but once I get it enclosed in the garage I do.

Any ideas? It is not leaking anywhere that I can see.

Well I went back out in the garage with a flashlight and found a very small leak. Didn't take the fairing of yet on the driver side but I could see a very small about of fuel built up on the vally of the line where it was collecting and very slowly driping. It is not very heavy leak but I need to pull off some plastic to see where it is coming from exactly.

Default found the leak

So I got the kids to bed and decided to go work on the bike. I took the tank off and found that the leak was coming from the bottom of the tank.

You can see where the previous owner had tried to seal this at some point.

Can I just get some Red-kote to seal up this leak?
