I would start with a good tune up. Also, there is a good chance the converter is plugged and it should be checked too. As far as the gas smell, if you have cyenders that are missing, there is a build up of gas in them and you could smell it. Also, this could contribute to a catylatic converter problem. Start with the tune up and check the converter.
