    I realize that TSB was for different years, but its possible it could be the same situation. Also check all fuel lines and connections.

    Make sure theres no fuel leaks from the fuel rail/injectors as you may only smell it on cold days casue you turn your heater on which sucks the fumes in...

    Check it out soon or have a mechanic check it out as raw fuel in the engine bay may not be too safe.
