2001 suzuki katana is runing through gas very quick, also, every time i stop and a light i smell gas

Sounds like one of your cylinders isn't firing. That would lead to a rough idle, hard to start, loss of power and smell of gas.
Causes include:
Bad sparkplug
broken plug wire
other broken wire
problem in fuel delivery

Starts up and when I go to drive it, it shuts off. Smell gas as if it is flooded.

start it and shut the fuel petcock so it will drain the bowl of the carburator.
It sounds like it has a sticky float valve to me... and this will solve that .

2011 town chrysler gas smell

I would check the gas cap to make sure the gasket is seating correctly on the filler neck. Also check, if you can, the filler neck from the gas cap down to the tank. If it is damaged, it could seep gas fumes. If you see no other signs of an obvious leak on the garage floor, it's likely a gasket issue in the fuel fill side of the system. It does not take much fumes to smell it strongly.

The small engine light on the dash board has been coming on for a couple of days then going off again. I had a local garage do a diognostics check and the fault code was unfamiliar. They told me to take it...

Hello... Not sure what you need.. Is there a way to get the code that the garage pulled. With the code or codes I am pretty sure I can explain somethings for you... Email me at reference your vehicle and this post.
