That doesn't even sound right. My repairs were done for free (well,I rented a car) this week, with nearly 56k miles on it. It's an 02. Give Subaru a call and speak to someone personally.
What is "every little detail"? They are aware of the problem. So imho, they just need to know the car has that raw fuel bouquet in the cabin. Typically, in my experience, you'll be instructed to call your dealer, and make an appointment, then let Subaru know when the appointment is. The dealer has to confirm the raw fuel smell, then he/she contacts the district/regional manager who makes a decision about how the dealer should proceed. From what you're saying it's a toss-up from there. But many have had the repair work done as a courtesy by Subaru.
Try again. Good luck!
