Smile 96 960 Fuel Bank Rich

Hi everyone! My CEL came on and the diagnostics were Evap and Fuel Bank Rich. The guy at the shop told me that it could mean that a valve is stuck and the engine is getting to much gas. I admit at times I can smell fuel really strong when the car is parked in my garage and coming through the air vents. Other than that gas milage is good and it runs great. Is this valve something I could check? The guy at the shop said they could tell me if it is a valve for a mere $190! Is there something else I can check? I just had the fuel pump changed about 6 months ago. I do need to change the plugs and I am due for an oil change. Thanks for any advice you can provide.

I am not a mechanic but am not afraid to try thing on my own.
