It might be fuel related. If you smell fuel when you open the hood
check fuel rail that supplies fuel to the injectors for leak.
Start the car while running open the hood, try to snif little bit around if you smell gas,
also when engine misses on accelaration, check for dirt in the fuel system, make sure the gap is not set wide on the spark plugs, burn warped or pitted valves, or you have faulty coil.
