Default I have it too!

Seems to be when cold weather is in... below freezing.... car sitting outside (non-garaged) Does not seem to matter if engine is cold or warmed up.

Build Date: 03/01

Cat-back exhaust, and a little more.... not relevant here....

Fuel smell seems to come from the areas in the pics above....

If you take a mini-mag lite, and stick it in the "V" opening of the manifold on the passenger side, and look as far down towards the block, I have seen fuel puddle there. (in a crevice on the block)

Can not tell where the leak is actually coming from.

I have to turn of the "fresh Air" and heater, then open windows to breathe....

Sometimes this happens as often as a dozen times a day (full day of driving around.. shopping etc....)

I have brought my car to the dealer 4 times for this issue. They can not duplicate the scent, nor can SOA tell them anything special except that I shouldn't use any "fuel additives"
