i think my problem is

it seems that after the car has sat for a while the o2 sensor could go bad. mine sat for 2 months and before it sat i was getting 400 miles on a tank of gas. now i am lucky to get 300 miles on a tank and i have a funky smell inside the car when it is going. it smells worse when i put the heater on. could this be the o2 sensor doing this

How many miles are on your car? could be many things. Converter plugging up. bad 02 sensor, in need of a tune up etc.
