Hello! check your fuel pump, i think this car still has a mechanical fuel pump, once the diapghram in fuel pump is bad, it will release gas fumes after a few km of driving.

Smell gas while driving inside car

A leaking fuel line can be discovered by looking for gaspuddles under your car when parked. A fuel-injection line may also leak, causing you to notice the smell of gasfumes during and immediately after driving. A fuel-tank vent hose may also leak, causing unburned gas to exit your fuel system as vapor.24 Apr 2015

Raw gas in exhaust

Sounds to me if its a rotten egg kind of smell I would be looking at the catalytic converter. If its a fuel smell I would be looking for a possible external leak . You can do this by setting the emergency brake vehicle in park and rotate the key to the on position. You will hear a hum as the fuel pump kicks in, follow your fuel lines from the tank to the manifold. You may have to cycle the key every few minutes cause the pump will not run continuously. Genarally with a stuck injector you would get an engine light either because of a miss fire code an emmision code for runnig to rich. If no engine light focus on external leak.

Going threw to much gas

You either have a gas leak or a thief. Check the gas lines that run under the car and the connections under the hood

After several attempts to start with alot of sputtering and having the gas peddal floored , start with alot of blow by, now I notice a major gas leak while runnig center of engine bottom area, do you know...

You do have the fuel line running in that area. Most fuel line leaks are at connections, ( where two lines are connected ).
If you, or a friend, are handy this should be a pretty easy fix.
If you are not handy, it shouldn't cost very much at all to have it fixed at an auto repair shop.

I hope this helps

99 zx2 will start up but run only if you give it constant gas. it will die if you let off the gas but all electric stays on. what could be wrong?

I would start by looking for a vacuum leak. You may even be able to hear the sucking sound if it is large enough, an assistant will be helpful in keeping it runnig while you look. An idle air bypass valve is also another likely culprit. But first verify no vacuum leak or intake air leak. Mass Air Flow sensor could cause it too, but is usually associated with a running issue off of idle as well.
Good luck
