GASOLINE SMELL

2001 Subaru Outback

Smells problem
2001 Subaru Outback 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 150, 00 miles

When it gets cold outside usually below (32 deg. F), the smell of gasoline is noticeable in the passenger compartment. It comes and goes. I haven't noticed a drippings of gas or oil where I park. Are there fittings that shrink when it is very cold. Does anybody have any ideas.

Hi: Can you smell it outside of the car? Also, if you smell it in the car, chances are it's coming from under the hood. Check for leaks at the injectors, fuel lines.

Let me know if you find anything.
