Could also be a plugged catalytic converter. You may need to replace it as they tend to cause fuel to backflow thru injectors and not start which will in turn give you a good reason why you have fuel smell when trying to start.
Could be to many thing to take chances with, but most commonly;fuel filter,gas line antifreeze or a crack in your air intake which would take your vacuum seal away, start with the least expensive and work from their. Worst case scenario pinched fuel line

Do you have a check engine light on? If yes; try to get the code, have someone loan you a scan tool to access the codes. If you do not have a check engine light on it is not a ecm control issue, ie. (cam or crank sensors etc). Suspect the fuel pump. If you are certain it is working ok. Next is to check the coil pack and Ignition module. Look for spark at the plugs. Pull a plug wire and look / listen for spark to jump out the end to bear metal as you spin the engine trying to start it.
Hello, I would first do a general tune up. Replace the oil, fuel, and air filter. I would next change your Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wires, Distributor Cap and Rotary Button. This may be just a clogged fuel or air filter or your spark plugs are fowled out and they need replaced as well. I would first however check your brakes becuase you say it pulls correct; this may be bad brakes and rotors and grabbing so I would inspect and check these first and if they are not bad I would move onto the tune up ok. If you have any questions email me back. I hope you have good luck!
