oil smell inside car

my car has about 150k miles on it. running fine until a week ago. i was low on gas n ran it to empty by mistake...
after filling up, engine would start shaking on idle after 10minutes, and when driving can smell gasoline, making it almost unbearable to drive. also engine would turn off eventually as rpm lowers down to, but is ok when i turn on radio and heat to keep it higher on idle. also when i step on accelerate theres white smoke from exhaust.
i changed the spark plug afterwards.. first time since 60k miles and they looked oven burnt black.
id appreciate any thoughts or input. thank you

You've probably picked up debris/water off the bottom of the tank Add a bottle of Techron fuel treatment and see if the issue clears up.
