If you go into the boot (head only of course) and remove the 'roof lining' you can find the breather system on top of the patrol tank. It basically is a small canister with carbon in it, that traps/holds fumes, next a solenoid valve controlled by the ECU will open (when conditions are right) to let those fumes out to the engine.
From the breather system, blue tubing goes forward to your engine's air intake, this is actually the patrol vapor line that carries the patrol tank fumes to the engine to be burnt.
Check if you smell petrol around the breather system, check if that blue tubing is still properly connected. Another thing: when the solenoid opens and the canister is 'emptied', air is also sucked into the canister. I believe that air intake of the canister is also a short bit of blue tubing, but there should be a one-way valve there as air only must go in and no fumes out. Could be that that one-way valve is broken and is slowly letting petrol fumes out of that canister.
That vapour system is pretty simple (canister, solenoid valve, one-way valve and tubing), so it should be simple enough to see if it really is 100%
