If the cat was blocked you would have noticed a massive power loss and your speed would have been down to - 40kph
If that was the case then yes the cat has collapsed and needs replacing

Bring the vehicle to a repair shop and have them scan the ECU for codes . Have the shop repair the items the code(s) direct them to.

Did you have the code cleared after you installed the new part because the ECM cannot clear itself, even though you installed a new part and the code is still in the system? You need to have the code erased with a OBD II scanner.

if you can smell fuel then something is wrong. if you smell it only out of the tailpipe then if there was a problem the check engine light would be lit up. raw fuel could be leaking at a fuel line or component and unless is severe would not cause a engine light.you didnt state what your mileage is your getting but alot of things cause poor mileage number one is driving conditions and habits.you can increase gas mileage more than 15 miles to the gallon on alot of cars just by paying attention to driving habits. also it is important to clean the throttle body regularly. a dirty one causes all kinds of problems and low fuel mileage is one of them.it needs to be physically cleaned,no in tank treatment or additives will do the job.if you take to a shop make sure you see a tech taking of air intake tube and cleaning it with some sray AND a brush. some shops just put additives in the gas and oil and sometimes in a vacuum hose or throug the fuel rail.it is an inexspensive service [when not included in a fuel injection cleaning package] and should be done at 30,000 miles or sooner depending on drive conditions etc.
