Funny you should mention that, mine did go bad and had to be replaces. On my car it's a Y fitting. I had to lie in the snow at a junk yard in 5 degrees of Massachusetts winter to cut one out of a wreck. (Local dealer didn't stock it.) Unfortunately that didn't stop the fuel odor problem. I'm convinced at this point that the probelm is on the top of the fuel tank somewhere. If I don't fill the tank completely I don't get the smell.
