This is a friends car and haven't even had time to look at it or anything yet .
It's only just started doing this and thought I'd try and get some ideas.

Car not running right even after warmed up .
No engine management light .
Smells of petrol .
Using a lot of fuel compared to normal .

Now after reading that I'd go straight to a fuel leak realy but going to see car tomorrow but I suppose it could be oxgen sensor and be unburnt fuel ?

That or cts not going into closed loop, cheaper of the two too.
Can check it's resistence to see if it changes as warms up. Inexpensive anyway.

Could be some fuel hoses being blocked. You need to look at all the major hoses. Anyone of them can make the car go like stink.

EDIT: Not go like stink, just stink! :lmao:

Not 100% sure, sorry. I don't mess about, just change things.
If it doesn't solve it, you know that part will be good and trouble free and new.
