When the engine is started it ticks and as I accelerate the tick gets faster. It also smells of gas when I first start it. Do you know what it could be and if it will be an expensive fix or is it something I can fix at home?

Do you
have the same problem?

Peed increases with rpm? May be a lifter noise. What viscosity oil do you use. You could try adding LUCAS oil stabilizer.
