Question about 2001 Subaru Legacy
For the last 2-3 months, my 2001 Subaru Legacy has been intermittently smelling like gas. It comes and goes, but seems to happen most often when my tank is just above the half-way mark. Sometimes around the empty mark. The check engine light also came on last week, but went off later that day and hasn't come back on since. The smell of gas is inside and outside the car, but if I turn the heater off, the smell inside subsides. Any suggestions on what might be causing this?
There is a recall on some of the fuel lines under the hood, they get old and leak.

I would do a check run on the entire fuel line assembly to check for leaks. also, check the fuel pump seal for cracks as well as the manifold gaskets. you should run into the problem here.
