Car has stock injectors and stock fuel rails.
One day it just won’t start and smells like fuel really bad after turning it over a few times, and after 20-30 minutes of sitting it fired up. What could be the issue? Just bought this car not that long ago. And yeah oil smells like fuel and was just changed. Please all help would be highly appreciated and yes I’m going to change the oil again lol.

Came in to make sure the FRPS was mentioned....haha. Good job guys. I believe that when the FPDM, driver module, goes into thermal shock it just doesn't start. Don't think you get any smell with it. So, Def replace that FRPS and report back

Rodents, rats seem to like some particular fuel lines. Once they get to a gas scent they stop chewing, leaving a small pin hole in the line.
Results depend on your local and where you park.
They ate the line on my wife's Escape. It was spraying fuel.
Crazy scary stuff.
Good luck,
