My 1999 chevy blazer is running rich where I smell fuel fumes can this cause the truck to loose power and not go over 30 but the engine runs smooth

Most likely, A good "burn" is the right Fuel-air mixture. Too much fuel bad burn lots of black smoke. Not enough fuel It may not burn at all. Any emission codes? I will bet it won't pass an emissions test, so get it fixed. Probably affects mileage. Do you smell fuel in the engine compartment? you have a dangerous leak. Or do you smell at exhaust? Do you smell in the cab?
Probably leak in engine bay, or even under the truck's fuel line, filter, pump. or tank.

Pumping to much gas cat converter

if there is raw fuel getting to the cat then you have an engine management problem. too much injector on time, too high fuel pressure, not burning fuel mixture properly, wrong sensor signal/bad sensor that can affect fuel supply to combustion chamber or burning of fuel. it could possibly be a computer problem.

My 1997 town car is burning to much fuel not leaking it but burning it i can smell the gas when driving it

It can be several things. The engine automatically sets to a RICH mode for cold starts. It will stay in RICH until a temperature sensor warms up. There are sometimes 2 sensors with one for the dash and the other for the engine controls.
Next would be a faulty fuel pressure regulator keeping the pressure too high. Or dirty fuel injectors failing to close properly.
Finally, air leaks in the intake manifold will make the O2 sensors dump fuel to restore the fuel ratio. Check with water spray bottle on intake seams while engine is running.

Constantly burning out fuel pumps

Running low on fuel can put a strain on fuel pumps,but this fuel today also has a bearing on it also,Have you changed brands?A different fuel pump brand might help,also,if you are running a amp for the sound system,this puts a load on the alternator,and low voltage will cause this situation also,the fuel pump is a motor,and if the voltage flows too slow threw the pump motor,it will finaly burn out,check the alternator out put,it should be reading at the battery 13.65 volts to 14.25 volts with the head lights on,and the ac blower on high setting.

I have a 97 Saturn SL, why would my fuel economy drop from 37mpg in the summertime to about 30mpg in the winter?

summer blended fuel and winer blended fuel many reasons for the two in spring/summer more cars are out driving so the fuel needs to burn more thoroughly to help reduce smog emmisions this is accomplished through a slower burn rate enssuring the most amount of fuel is burned which inturn is more power
