My Volvo starts and drives okay as long as I am accelerating. Every time I take my foot off the gas it stalls. Also there is a strong oder of gasoline.

What you may want to try first is have the idle air control valve cleaned ad see if that works? As for the fuel smell, check the fuel pressure regulator for leaks and maybe the injectors. If it is more like an exhaust smell you are actually gettin, have the manifold nuts checked and retighten. They could be loose and maybe you could be missing a nut? Keep me posted the idle issue.
