Diesel Smell in Garage

Talked to wife about getting a diesel F150, "it will smell" I said it wouldn't. Yes, it smells like diesel in my garage, luckily I also have a detached garage so for now it is exiled to the rear garage.
Do all the trucks stink up the garage or is there something wrong with mine? I don't remember my 6.0 diesel leaving fuel smell in the garage.
The 72 GTO just got promoted to the main garage.

Never have smelled diesel. I wonder if there is a little leak at the tank? Only smell I have ever noticed was after parking while regen was occurring and it wasn't diesel.

I crawled around underneath it today, couldn't see or feel anything wet.

I think you have a problem. Are you, or was the fuel tank overfilled? My 2019 has no smell at all. However, you may be mixing the smell of the DPF after the first passive/active regenerations. That REALLY stink in the garage until the DPF is heated up a few times.
