You may have a fuel line leaking (a very dangerous fire hazard!) Or you could have one or more defective fuel injectors in the engine. Defective fuel injectors may not stop the fuel flow when they "close" so it is possible to put way too much fuel into a cylinder, resulting in what was called "flooding" in the days of carburetors. If you bought the car from a dealer, take it back for safety reasons! It is unlawful to sell a fire hazard for a vehicle.
