Yes, but there should never be gasoline anywhere near the air filter. It's injected less than 2" from the intake valve and the airstream pulls it straight in. The only way would be if the rings are shot, the engine is really rich, and the blowby is carrying fuel thru the crankcase, backward out of the breather filter in the airbox. But it would carry a LOT of oil with it; is the breather filter fouled? Pull the hose from the valve cover to the breather filter and check how it smells. Is the PCV valve (on the other valve cover) working properly? Is its vacuum hose to the plenum OK? Is there fuel leaking out of the fuel rail putting the smell in the whole engine compartment?
