    i had that problem at one point. It went away after a while. It came back the other day again. But is gone again. I still have a check engine code for a small leak in my emissions.....im clueless. Let me know if you find anything out. One thing you might want to check is the seal around the fuel pump. Sometimes the gasket has a bit of a bump on it and doesnt seat correctly. Do you have an aftermarket fuel pump?

    +1 this has been covered and there is a TSB for it. I don't think it's really going to cause a problem though, mine still does it - haven't had a problem and I'm pretty well modded.

    Gas Smell

    ya man i have a 2002 wrx also, and as of right now, i get a strong smell of raw gas in my car, i cant figure out what it is, and planning on taking it to a mechanic, but the smell is soo strong, and i notice that you smell it the most when the car is sitting idle, once you start moving its not so bad, but sometimes its fine, and other times i get the smell i dont know what it is, but im going to get it checked out, cuz i dont want my car to like blow up on me

    select the air to circulate within the car so gas smell doesnt come in from engine bay for short term then do this below.

    Do you have to get the fuel lines from the dealer, or is there anyway to alter the existing fuel line and hoses?

    It's in the notice.

    Here is the notice:

    While you're at it, have them check your control arms:
