I didn't read the whole thread (130+ responses!!) but I get the basic idea becuz I just had my problem taken care of this week.

I had the same gas smell coming thru the vents during start-up on cold days. Went away after warm up....but this weekend the smell got worse. I saw gas leakking from the line....right under the intake hose from the air box to the turbo....there was a clamp right under the bend of the intake and gas was leaking

Took it to Subaru the next day and as usual........they couldn't find the leak or see any problem. Luckily when I got there the head mechanic did smell the gas odror so he acknowledged it but they claim they checked ALL fuel lines and found no leaks. They tightened everything up...extra turns on the clamps etc.

Fingers are far sa good (knock on wood)

By the way...only a K&N panel & axle back (for now ) otherwise...bonestock!!
