Check all gas lines from your gas tank to the carburetor and see if there are damp spots and if you see any damp spots take your finger and wipe the damp spot and smell. If it smells like gas there probably is a slight leak. even a moist spot of gas will smell big time.
Check all around your gas tank as well. A question i have do you have a clean air filter. If not it might be choking itself to *****.

SOURCE: fuel problem
you might want to check your cabin air filter or the charcoal canister underneath the hood. it's purpose is to remove any excess fumes from the gastank. if it's broken or clogged that would explain why you smell gas in the car

Are you sure you ran out of petrol? It might be that the petrol pump or something else had died. The only way to tell is to undo the fuel line from the carb and turn it over, check if it pumps fuel (have someone help you with this.) You might also find that you've got a blockage in your fuel filter, caused maybe by **** left floating at the top of the tank that was sucked in when you ran out of petrol. Check the filter first and see if it's OK, then check if fuel is flowing. Also, on a 97 Alfa, I'd imagine it was fuel injected though I could be wrong. If it is then you'll want to be more careful wit the fuel line.

SOURCE: Car smells of petrol also
Lets start with the simple stuff first. Look under the car see if its leaking gas possibly from the gas tank or the gas line. Then with the car not running look around the engine compartment and see if you see any gas leaking. Also if the gas smell is stronger in the engine compartment. Look at your gas line especially toward the top of the engine you may spot the leak. I need to caution you if the leak is in the engine compartment and your handy and you can repair it that's excellent. But if you do spot the leak it might be very dangerous to drive the car somewhere. Gas leaks can be very hazardous if they are in the engine compartment. If your not handy then I would recommend you contact your local auto repair shop for repairs.
I hope this helps you out, if it does please give me a YES on the web page you just recieved my response on. Thank you.

Could be a whole gambit of problems
1) Check the HT system is good, contacts clean, good spark on the plugs.
2) Check the water temperature sensor.
3) Check the air filter isn't clogged.
Finally, here's a pretty good Renault forum, the solution could be here:-
