The smell of gasoline in the drivers area is a very serious thing.
theres a good chance you have a fuel leak on the engine which could ignite and put you in dire straights.
open the hood and remove the air cleaner, then start the engine and inspect for any fuel leakage.
listen for any popping noises in the engine compartment, if its popping you may have a blown exhaust manifould gasket, you would get gas fumes from this also.
check these items out and let me know
good luck and would appreciate your feedback.
thanks

2000 Avalon XLS air condition keeps cutting off


Could be low on freon or a relay / switch problem.
Could also be a problem with the ac clutch on the compressor.
You can check the freon charge first, or check the clutch for voltage when the system cuts off.

2000 Avalon won't start and idle. Only while foot is on the gas


Avalons are prone to the the throttle body and Idle control valve getting gunked up over time. I took mine off, spent about 45 minutes cleaning it well with carb cleaner and q tips, and reinstalled. I haven't had the problem since. It is relatively easy, the hard part is not stripping the screws. Everthing is righ on top of the engine, not a hard repair. Mine did not have the smoke issue, however, it would start but would die as soon as you let off the gas.

Check engine light on;engine codes p0420 and p0773


I looked up the codes you posted.
P0420 is showing a bad oxygen sensor on bank #1, the one down by the catalytic converter.
P0773 is an electrical problem with the shift solenoid E.
A bad oxygen sensor would cause lower fuel milage.
