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.
The only thing that is going to cause a gas smell inside the car while driving is a fuel leak. You need to get the vehicle up on a lift and inspect the fuel lines from the fuel tank to the fuel rails on the engine. This may or may not be related to the repairs you had done. - It depends on where the leak is...
if i recall the 3.5l engine had the habit of leaking fuel at front top of engine. it is a steel pipe that goes from one fuel rail to the other, the orings leak. just give it a little push down while running and if orings are bad it will spray fuel [stand to the side when doing this]
also the plastic fuel rails were known for cracking.
both of these concerns were recalled on some model years call local dealer to see if yours is covered. the 3.3l had a fuel rail recall as well.
reason i mentioned these is if there is a leak the gas will drain back to tank or slowly leak out so when you try to start engine it will crank longer because fuel pressure will have to build back up
a carfax will show excatly what the dealer saystem says that it has been done.. if you see the reinforcements on the rail then it has been completed.. the other one is the floor shifter interlock rod.... have any dealer run the vin number again they can tell you the date and dealer that did the repairs.... if he ever took it in for any type of service at the dealer even a oil change they have to repair it at no charge maybe he just dont remember it getting done.. the wife or family member may have used the car... but once you have the date and dealer that did it work it may help jog some memory..if the rail is leaking and the repairs are shown to have ben done you can purchase the repair parts on your own from a dealer CADJ7902 is the rail package..

I just emailed this to someone else, it might be your problem. Also, what I didn't mention to this guy, is the recall also states that a fuel line somewhere up there can crack too. Look it up to see exactly what I'm trying to say, just get on google and it will pop up.
A factory recall put out in AUG 98. The seals on the fuel lines up on the top of the motor wear out and when the engine is hot they expand and then leak fuel when the engine starts to cool off, you don't get the correct fuel pressure to the injectors, and you have to flood it to get it to start or let it sit longer. Just go down to your local Dodge dealership and they will fix it for free, I'm getting mine done Monday, my car is a 95 with 166k, and it won't cost me anything. Google recalls on 96 dodge intrepids with the 3.5 L if you don't believe me.
