CHEVY WEIRD SMELLS WHEN VEHICLE IS NOT RUNNIN

1986 Chevrolet Spectrum

Smells problem
1986 Chevy Spectrum 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 147600 miles

I recently asked you a question about my 86 spectrum sport and now I have just one or two more questions. One is the smell of rotten eggs or gasoline when I walk out to my car and it won't be running. I am wondering if that is from the gas that has been in it for 12 years and the other question is I am wondering for the gas that is in it the car would it hurt for that gas to just be driven out of it? Or how would you recommend to solve this problem? I am planning to buy a new fuel filter to put on the car but I am curious if driving the foul smelling fuel out of it would hurt the car? Got any ideas?
