you're saying it doesn't matter if it's warm or not? what's the weather like?

i'm just noticing this with my WRX, too. but for me it's gotta be cold.

we haven't had a winter until the last couple days in Nebraska, and i don't have to park outside, but the last few days, it's been butt cold and snowy (yay!) and i've had to park outside while visiting family (yay! for family, BOO! for outside parking.)

i've noticed a raw fuel smell in my cabin twice now.

i'm speculating that it's running really really rich to try to warm up, so there's raw fuel in the exhaust. but if anyone has any other ideas, i'm more than open.

i was thinking of driving to colorado in about a week or so, so i hope to get something figured out soon.

i have a Scoobysport catback exhaust and i've done the intake silencer removal and i use synthetic oil. otherwise stock.
