Would not gaping the spark plugs properly cause fuel to come out of the tailpipe?


Possible, but it would be a rough engine spin.
Check the fuel level in the carb, or the fuel pressure from the pump as well.

Why is a very strong gas smell coming from my tailpipe?


White smoke is water vapor and in this cold climate it is normal. Strong gas smell is not normal although you may smell some while engine is warming up. Bad cat converter can produce smells, but usually more like rotten eggs. If engine is running rough and seems rich, check coolant temp sensor. Bad converter can cause stalling too. Otherwise, idle speed is controlled by idle air contol motor which can get dirty and stick. Any codes set?

Sounds to me like the timing belt has jumped a tooth or 2 and now your not firing correctly. Hence the unburnt fuel, eratic running, misfiring and poor performance.

White smoke comes out of tailpipes when crank..goes away, car hesitates & stalls out strong smell of gas


You most likely have a bad fuel pressure regulator which is causing the fuel to dump into the cylinders and flood the car.

1993 lumina euro is blowing black out of tailpipe smells gas


Black smoke is unburned gas. If the car is running fine besides the black smoke, it's most likely the Coolant Temperature Sensor. The part is roughly $20 and an easy fix.

Smelling gas in the tail pipe


your catalytic converter is likely not working properly. That explains the raw smell and the black smoke.

Either that or you are leaking gasoline onto the exhaust from the car.
