Could be a leaking gasket as to the reason you are smelling the petrol, plus the fact that it may also be sensing more air in the engine so overfuelling.
check the gaskets around the sparkies and replace any as necessary, this has worked for some people.

Will it be the o2 sensor

The o2 sensor could be faulty causing an overread which could be causing it to overfuel!
