SOURCE: Strong odor of gasoline inside cabin

The is a short rubber hose in the the fuel line that connects to metal tubes on the driver side of the engine. When it is cold, the rubber shrinks, and if the clamps are loose, the fuel will leak from there. Tighten the clamps or replace the short hose with a hose that has some flex, a bit long, to accommodate the shrinkage movement. 
Good luck with the dealer, because when the engine heats up the hose the fuel does not leak at all. This was a recall on WRXs but even with the same setup, Subaru denies there is an issue in the 2.5 fuel line layout.  My dealer told me to call a tow truck when it happens again, no matter where or when, and bring it in?!?!?!

Smelling fuel inside car while driving


In most cases, if you can smell fuel inside the cabin, the fuel leak is some place on or around the engine. Fumes from the engine compartment can move into the cabin thru the fresh air vents.
Could be a leaking injector or fuel line.

Inspect your car immediately. Leaking gasoline is a fire hazard, especially check the seals on the fuel injectors.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gas smell


This is a common problem with the rubber fuel lines on the injector rails and the lines coming to and from the fuel filter that is attached to the driver side strut tower. Tighten the clamps as far as you can. If that doesn't fix / stop the leaks, you may need to check hoses one by one and maybe replace hoses that are soft or brittle or not tightening properly. There may be a Subaru recall on the fuel injection rail connections, in which case the fix is free. If not, high-pressure fuel line hose isn't expensive if from a parts store. This problem usually shows up when it gets real cold outside, like 10 degrees or colder.

I am smelling gas but see no gas leaking


Is your check engine light on? Fumes rise, so if the leak is in the top of the tank or the filler neck, this would allow the fumes to escape, smelling of gas, and tripping your check engine light.

Smelling gas fumes in passenger cabin. Cannot detect any smell under hood. Does it have a cabin air filter ?


There are rubber gas line hoses under the hood & after a number of years they tend to leak ever so slightly. They are under the hood to the passenger side. You may need to replace these fuel lines. There should be a cabin filter but you must take the wiper motor screen off to get at it & it is on the passenger side. Good luck!
