    There is a known issue in very cold weather where your fuel lines will leak slightly. Is it really cold in your part of the world right now?

    There is a TSB out for this issue. Here in the states Subaru finally decided to address the problem. They are fixing it for free here, but the dealers aren't getting paid enough for the work so they rush the job. A lot of people then have more issues after the fix. Later if I can I will post a link to the TSB thread.
