I was driving my 2002 wrx (21,000 miles) in extreme cold -20f or colder in a very remote area, and got a bad smell of gas in the car. I was in a remote location so had to wait the weekend till dealers opened on Monday morning . I called two & they professed they never heard of such a thing.

When weather was warmer 0 degeees I tied thecar again again and the smell was had gone so I drove it the 100 milles home.

I will call my dealer today.

This was very annoying as we had to make an unplanned layover of two days and the town had no car rental.

I called Subaru roadside assistance and they did offer to tow the car.
