I "googled" -sulfur smell in car- and found several forum and other places that talked to this.

There is some sulfur in gas and the additives put in gas. The catalytic converter is supposed to convert any sulfur to sulfur dioxide which is odorless. If you're getting sulfur odor (rotten eggs odor) from you car, then one of the stations you buy gas at has more sulfur in it than the other and your catalytic converters are probably starting to go bad.

I'd look there first anyway.
