Zetec 1.6 engine problems?

Hi all

Need some advice,

I have a ford focus zetec 1.6 T reg

Been away for 4 weeks and car has been stilling on the drive during this time.
Now the focus doesnít drive the way it should.
Fuel consumption has gone up and the engine feels gutless below 3000rpm.
Sometimes when I cold start the car, there is a slight smell of petrol in the air (this has only happen twice). The car starts first time, it will idle around 1200rpm until the engine is warm, at which point it will idle around 700rpm.
I have changed the spark plugs and the leads.
I have had the exhaust check by kwik fit under guarantee. They say itís not the exhaust that is the problem.

Any advice on what the problem might be and will it be expensive to solve?
