there are more than a couple people who have mentioned a raw fuel smell in their cars in various sections of the board. so far, no service department has been able to duplicate this problem. as it has been a recently starting, but now regularly occuring problem for my WRX, i am attempting to gather information about who else has the problem.
i see any type of fuel leak as a potentially dangerous problem and want to get to the bottom of it.
please log any occurances of a raw fuel smell (i.e. gasoline smell) in the passenger cabin or engine compartment that cannot be attributed to gasoline on your person/clothing/shoes/etc.
location of smell's origin (if known)
date of manufacture (Your build date will be on an aluminum rectangular plate at the bottom right corner of the driver's door frame, it will give you the month/year.... MM/YY)
any mods to your car (although i don't see this as a cause. the problem has occured in both highly mod'ed and unmod'ed cars.)
