If the fuel sender is in the area under ther trunk (boot) floor, you would have to fold the rear seat down and remove the floor panel to get at the sender. After you removed the sender, did any of the gas spill onto the carpeted back of the rear seat, the rear compartment felt or run down into the carpeting? That would account for the smell. You can remove the carpeting or felt and wash them in a large commercial washer (Like at a laundromat), the seat you will need to scrub.
