Gas killers could be a blocked air filter, or possibly a crap temp sensor, an O2 sensor.... a stuck caliper. Previous owner could have messed with the AFM.

Could be many things.

I've had 2 different cars leak right at the filter. It sucks balls. Looks fine when you go to leave, then it pours out the whole time you;re driving and don't normally think to look once you;re parked. Leaks for a few minutes after you stop then it clears up by the time you get back to it. When it was leaking at the filter I never really noticed much of a stink except at long stoplights.
This also caused delayed starting since the lines were drained.
