As the temp. gets colder the hoses harden, as you drive the car the lines get hot then cold then hot then cold, this flux in temperature can crack hoses and you might find some lines need to be replaced. I have seen a couple of the 02-03 wrx's needing hoses replaced because of this.
it does have the filter in the engine bay but i checked all the lines and they are tight and show no signs of cracks or leaks. but there are quite a few fuel lines in the engine bay
