Idle mixture may not be your problem. If you're running a healthy cam you may not have enough vacuum at idle to hold the metering rods down. Both Edelbrock and Carter sell spring sets for different idle vacuum conditions. If the metering rods aren't held down at idle the mixture will be pretty rich and will cause the gas odor you're talking about.
