1998 mustang gt gas smell and doesnt want to rev up sometimes? please help

hey guys, i have a 1998 mustang gt, when im going down the road i am getting a gas smell and sometimes it doesnt wanna rev up-- like if i try to rev between gears it revs up but not other times-- i have replaced the filler neck seal because that was bad and also have done new plugs and wires, it was giving me a check engine light (1443 e-vap code) i replaced the purge flow vavle, it stopped giving me that code and gave me P1445, but went out and has yet to return? can someone please help me, i have checked for VAC leaks and cant find any???

Is it "raw" fuel that you are smelling? Or does it smell like un-burnt fuel coming from the exhaust?
Also, check for any stored or pending codes again.
