    2012 WRX strong gas smell and sometimes isn't starting first crank.

    Hey guys. Just started having this problem lately on my dub. Sometimes, when I go to start the car, it won't start on the first crank. When it doesn't start, i give a second or too and try again. It always starts on the 2nd try, and when it does it will rev to about 1500rpms then back down to idle and then start puttering for about 7 seconds or so. After it putters I smell raw fuel super strong. Aside from that, within the past 3 or so weeks, ive had a raw gas smell when I come to stops or sitting at lights. Anyone else have this problem. I called my dealership and was supposed to get a call back, but haven't yet. I guess im calling back tomorrow, but in the mean time I just wanted to know if anyone else has seen this. Especially with a car that only has about 16k miles on it. It's all stock except for the SPT exhaust Ive had since day 1 of owning the car.

    Maybe you have a fuel system leak. If it's still under warrenty,take it in.

    Yeah, I'm taking it in but they couldn't get me in until next week.
