Possible causes include a bad O2 sensor, excessive fuel pressure (bad fuel pressure regulator or plugged return line), leaky fuel injectors, dirty air filter or restricted air inlet, or a defective coolant sensor that prevents the engine management system from going into closed loop mode.

Do you think there might be a blown head gasket? The gas smell is strong when dip stick is pulled from oil.

If its a headgasket problem you'll be experiencing overheating check the stuffs I've mentioned and comeback with some results so we can continue.
