My 88 did do this when I first got it....You might look for tell tale signs of gas around the gas cap tray....My auto fuel valve was dripping a bit...I could smell it but not see any till I lifted the valve up....Yup...drip,drip,drip while running.....evaporated by the time I got stopped and the lid open.
