Q: What causes sputtering, back fire, little to no pickup, strong fuel smell? on 1994 Chevrolet S10

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My truck sputters when I start it at times it will shift correctly but mostly doesn't run smooth, like it's having a hard time getting fuel. It will backfire between 40-50mph it has a strong gas smell when running and it wants to die out when in reverse while backing up.
