Every time I start my car I smell gas. It only last 10 minutes but now I'm concerned about a gas leak or something.

It's happened to me twice. First time was because my fuel line broke and I was spraying gas everywhere. Second time was a faulty plug so it wasn't firing.

I don't think it's leaking on the ground. I don't see any. I don't smell it until I start the car.

Could also be a broken fuel injector

I would get something like that checked ASAP.  I had that happen with my car.  I think it ended up being some type of leak from the fuel tank.  It was fixed for free, because it was covered under a recall.
