Default Injector issue

So I am not sure if this is the right section for this or not...but my car in the past had injector issues, where you would smell fuel and visibly see it leaking from the injectors.

Last night as I got out of my car I smelt fuel, but when I popped the hood and searched all the injectors I saw no leak what so ever, I sniffed over each one and the one has the potent smell over it and you only really catch a smell here and there.

I called a buddy of mine who is very knowledgeable with Subaru's,he has a 02 himself,he said that subaru actually had a recall for mostly 02's and some 0'3s. Which basically said that during the winter time something in the fuel lines would get real cold and shrink causing some fuel to leak out but it wasn't enough of a leak that you could actually see it...He said I basically have two options 1. Go to subaru and see if they will replace it, or 2. just wait till it gets warmer out and it will fix its self, so basically from what he said his car does it too and he doesn't think it is a serious issue.

So I was just wondering if any one else has heard of this as well? and if you believe this to be the problem?

Thoughts and opinions appreciated!
