Can you isolate where the smell is coming from ie heater vents, engine compartment, exhaust etc.

It hits to fast it's most likely coming through the vent. No one behind me has smelt any thing.

Check to see if your has a cabin air filter in it, some do some don't, that is one source the other is possibly some fluid is leaking in the engine compartment and hits the exhaust when you accelerate then it is sucked up by the air intake for the A/C-heater system. My advise to you is take it to a shop you trust and have it checked over, you may just be saving yourself a bundle of cash if you catch something small that can become big. There are plenty of good independent shops out there still.
