If you have a gas smell, you need to either have someone look at it before you move it, or have it towed to the shop. It's not worth the risk of driving it and having the gas leak cause a fire! A hot muffler will ignite gasoline.

If your spelling gas it may be the fuel pressure regulator located on the end of the fuel rail on top part of the motor, if it looks wet with gas depressurize the system to replace, wear safety glasses when disassembling and removing.
