Question about Cars & Trucks
My 1994 dodge shadow was running OK, but a belt squealed once in a while.
Your hose going to your brake booster came off or has a hole in it. It is a big vacumm hose, about one inch in diameter, coming from the engine to the round black thing behind the master cylinder. This boosts the brakes using vacumm from the engine. When it leaks, the peddle is hard to mash, and the engine is sucking air and running badly.

This should show up easily on the ECU diagnostics computer at a mercedes dealership. Basically your fuel mixture is way too rich causing your car to be heavy on gas, have a raw gasoline smell, and not run right. Something like this can be caused by a defective oxygen sensor (but that usually produces a check engine light) or it might even be a defective ECU. There is really not way of knowing for sure until you do a proper diagnostics where they hook up your exhaust at the same time and do an emmission test. In most cases it's some sensor that needs replacing.

Check the fuel cap gasket to be sure it is not torn or worn. After that check the vent hoses that run from the fuel tank to the charcole canister located somonwhere under the hood. Is the smell stronger under the hood or toward the rear of the car? If you cannot find the problem, a fuel leak is dangerous and should be attended to ASAp by somone that has the experience to repair the problem
