o2 sensor changed gas smell

I changed by o2 sensor yesterday but I notice that there is a little gas smell everytime I start the car. Is that normal? Could it be as a result of the mechanic not matching the wires correctly?

You may have a fuel leak. Im not sure how mis-wiring an o2 sensor can cause a fuel smell... Check around the fuel rail for leaks. Test your fuel psi. Not sure what sensor your mechanic used, but I bought an 02 sensor online and it is just plug and play, no wiring involved.
