United-States 2003 Mini Cooper S Engine Noise and Gas Smell, please help!!

Hello! I have a 2003 Mini Cooper S with about 120000 mile on it. Recently, when starting my mini, after running about 10 minutes the engine starts making a noise that can only be described and chunky and ticking. It doesn't start this way, and when I'm driving the noise goes away at speed, but when I slow down or stop, it sounds horrible. What can this be? Any thoughts are much appreciated! Also, can smell gas when driving.

Give more specifics. Are you driving in traffic? Stop and go? Smooth the whole time. Want to say drive shaft or engine mount buddy but need to know more..

First thing I would check is that the spark plugs are tight as they are known for working loose.
