I am trying to transfer several tokens from my metamask using MEW, and I have eth to cover the gas, and I followed all instructions many times, but every time it fails to transfer. Anyone have any advice? thanks.

Transferring tokens usually costs a lot more gas than simply sending eth. This is because you must call the transfer function on the tokens smart contract. What you will need to do is increase gas limit. (See images below on how to do that).

I recommend checking https://ethgasstation.info/ for what you should set the gas price to.

If that's not the issue it could be something with the contract itself in which it's out of your hands.

Sorry this is my time answering and I'm trying to give you as much information as I can based on your question.
