I personally would check the fuel pressure. Then I would go back to the coil. I have seen brand new bad coils out of the box. The symptoms of a loss of power point to this component, especially if the car idles well, but loses power when accelerating. Please do not rate this reply - we all are left to grasp at straws since you have changed pretty much everything. Good Luck. Please post the final fix of the problem.

Chances are you have a contaminated MAF sensor. If you are you have a fine touch and are mechanically inclined you may be able to save yourself a bit of cash by cleaning this yourself. You'll probably have to buy a couple tools to do it. The MAF is attached to it's housing with tamper proof torx screws and often times the factory fills their heads with epoxy. The housing is a pain to take apart as well. The problem comes from dirt building up on the diodes that sense the cooling effect of the air as it enters the engine. You have to get a q-tip and gently clean these diodes with a slovent. You can probably search the net to get the procedure. The alternative of course is just to buy a new assembly but they're not cheap. This is something I would do every couple of years as maintenance but you may want to be sure that it relates to your engine light first.

You mention no check engine light, and all the work you've done leave one solution; Your catalytic converter is clogged.
When you replace you catalytic converter your issues will cease. This is a very common problem, and a simple fix.
I hope this information helps and I wish you luck with your repair.

SOURCE: Fuel smell near the fuel tank
You may have an overloaded carbon cannister, the carbon cannister stores fuel vapors and is part of the evaporative emission control system, I will be willing to bet if you change it the smell will stop.
