Hello, my name is***** fact that you smell gas and have a specific cylinder misfiring would point toward that cylinder having poor spark due to spark plug or ignition coil. If spark is good then your injector is probably stuck open. This would be around $300 repair at a shop. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
