Default Small Fuel Leak?

Hey guys

been searching for over an hour here, so i apologize if this has been answered already.

I havn't noticed any issues until today but, saw some smoke coming up from under my hood scoop when i went to park today and I didn't think much of it because it was 6 degrees here (thought it was just heat dissipation from the engine). But then I started to smell fuel. Popped the hood and under the manifold closest to the driverside i saw a tiny puddle of what I assume is fuel.

I have a 02 wrx; and was just curious if it was just due to the cold weather. that there would be a small leak from a seal. In regular weather I dont normally have any issues nor do I smell fuel. Any insight would be helpful. I don't really want to drive it far if there's a fuel leak for obvious reasons.

Thanks in advanced.

Call your local dealership about the open recall for this problem. Should be repaired free of charge. I believe the recall is WVK-21

You are not searching correctly. Type "fuel leak" and change it from "Search Entire Posts" to "Search Titles Only"

There should be since yours is an 02.

Either way, you need to take care of it. Its a critical fuel leak.
If they don't cover($$$) and want to do it yourself, try locating the leak hose and inspect the hose for wear and tear. You might just need to replace the oem clamps with better ones.
