Need help! Various error codes and smell of vaporized gas when engine gets started

Hey guys,
I really need your help on this. Since two days I am getting error codes. When I start the engine I see a red triangle, a red car on lift and the red brake light says constantly.
Inpa shows following codes:

2A13

2A12

2A18

2F6C

2AAF

29F5

An aftermarket diagnostic tester is giving me code P2401.

Does anybody know what these codes mean? What do I have to replace to get the codes clear?

Btw, every time I start the engine I recognize an intense smell of vaporized gas. Some ideas where the hell this comes from?

My car has raceland downpipes and JB4. I am not too sure if this has to do with the codes.

Thanks for your help.

2A13, 2A12 and 2A18 all have to do with the DMTL pump, so it's likely that part needs to be replaced.

2F6C has something to do with the exhaust flap.

29F5 relates to the catalytic converter.

I don't think it's worth the hassle, I'd just go to the dealer or an indy you trust.

Thank you, that helps, could it be that the gas cap doesn't seal anymore? Or do you definitely think that I need to replace the DMTL pump?

Any ideas where the vaporized gas smell is coming from?

I have measured the DMTL via Inpa. I ' am getting 4,1 mA of current reference leak, 0 mA of current major leak and 4,3mA of current measurement leak. All values are I'm red zone. Do I need to replace the DMTL pump? The engine was not running at the measurement.
