Default Fuel Smell on 2007 Forestor

My Dad has a 2007 Forester w/ about 40k miles. After driving, especially when the weather is hot there is a raw fuel smell on the back drivers side of the car, basically about where the tire is. Does anyone know what is back there that could be causing this smell?

i had the same thing and went through and tightened all the clamps on the fuel lines to find that alot were not as tight as they should be. now there is no fuel smell. check the lines to your pump first then go to the lines in the engine bay

Is your father they type that likes to top of the fuel to the nearest dollar? If so, it's possible that there is some raw fuel buildup.

If that's not the case, bring it in to us (Mastro in Sanford) and we can take a look at it...

(Thanks Uncle Scotty!!!)
