Noticed it a while ago but I never really thought much of it.

How bad is it to have rust there? Could rust be getting in my gas?

Edit: Inside the filler neck (where the gas nozzle goes) is fine, no rust. On the outside of the neck and around it (as you see in the picture) has the rust.

You answered your own question. If it's fine inside the filler neck, you are ok. Don't sweat it.

Ok I just didn't know if rust could work it's way in my gas or not.

I hope it doesn't rust all the way through anytime soon.

Your car is 11 years old, it's bound to happen eventually. The bright side is, you can replace the part that is rusting.

"Fuel filler neck" is the general term. I don't know if Subaru calls it anything different, but you should be able to get a new one with that name.

I've never replaced it on the suby, but other cars it's a huge pain in the ass to replace since you have to drop the fuel tank. Just so you know.

You CAN replace the filler neck without dropping the tank. Just make sure the tank is very low (like gas light on) before you do it.
