Sounds like the timing chain or timing belt stretched, throwing off the valve timing, and then broke.

Why is my 2003 land rover Freelander burning 20amp fuel system fuses

You have an electrical short in that circuit. The fuse is doing its job, preventing a fire (barely). You need to find where the short is before trying to operate this vehicle again, or you will end up setting it on fire. Look for the burned/melted wires.

When cold starts but start, peddle to floor, rev a minute then it idles but at times dies when accelerating from a stop. Raw gas smell present and puff of blue smoke when it starts.

have you checked the cylinder compressions as backfire and blue smoke can be a symptom of low compression , either rings or valve seats but would need a dropdown test to be sure

300zx started smoking then died out

Sounds to me like you had an electrical burn out or near fire condition. Water may have gotten into an open area like wiring harness or fuse block and caused a short and what you were smelling is the insulation or other plastics burning. I would take the car to a auto electric specialist for diagnostics.

Engine dies then picks up again

Are you getting black puffs of smoke out the back when it slows and pedal is down? Have you ever changed the crankshaft filter? , this is not on any service schedule it is located under the wiring harness for the injectors , a way to check this is to have someone sit in car with it running , with the bonnet up take out the dipstick with it idling then get your helper to SLOWLY rev the engine if you can see oil coming up the dipstick the filter is clogged . Have you ever taken the erg valve out and cleaned along with the air intake manifold?.

Land rover 2.25 diesel 5brn.white smoke from

White smoke is indicative of burning antifreeze, if your not using antifreeze then it is condensation when the motor starts however if it does it all the time and it's not cold outside you have another problem.

Starts fine when cold, after running dies on idle then wont start

Sounds like the fuel filter is dirty and needing to be changed. It's cheap and easy to swap out.

I get a gas odor in the interior of my 1996 land rover discovery only when I open the windows. There is no leak from what I can see. The car runs fine at speed but dies occasionally at idle.

The gas smell is from your tail door seal,the window that is open causes a vacuum from this area , adjust the door to close tighter or replace the seal.V8 idling problem ,remove and clean the idle control valve situated on the rhs rear of the intake manifold (seen from the drivers seat )adjust the idling on the allen key screw near to the throttle cable lincage.
