See if the engine will jump start, if it will, there are two things to check.
1. Look on the battery for the CCA, ( cold cranking amps ) rating. Any battery can start an engine when it's above 32 degrees, but, below that the battery can lose up to 100 of its cranking amps.
If you have a 4 cylinder engine, you should have atleast 550 CCA. If you have a 6 cylinder, you really should have atleast 650 CCA.
The rating for the CCA is listed right on the battery. If your cranking amps are high enough then,
2. Check the levels in your battery. When the cells are low, they prevent the battery from reaching a full charge.
Once you confirm it's not a battery issue, you may want to check the emissions. I would do the two following things first.
1. Make sure you do not have a vacuum leak, or have it checked.
2. Check, or have checked, the MAF, ( mass air flow ) sensor.

Remove the battery positive cable from the B-terminal.
Disconnect the S-terminal electrical connector.
Remove the two starter motor bolts.
Remove the starter motor (11002) from the vehicle.
I'm leaning toward a bad sensor, as in throttle body temperature, or coolant temperature sensor. The smell of too much fuel is probably from pushing pedal to start, which shouldn't be necessary on a fuel injected vehicle. What does it do if you leave your foot off the gas pedal during start? As far as fuel filter goes, if it hasn't been done in a while, I'd do it anyway just as preventative maintemance if nothing else.
