For my car, anything around 15 degrees in the morning and it would leak.

Default fuel smell

FWIW, and looking at some of the replies in the thread, the OP is going to be tempted just to tighten the clamps or add new clamps to the existing fuel line connections.

I remember back in ~2004/5/6 when this came up, TONS of us tried that, only to have the problem come back in one or 2 winters. So if you in fact have this same old problem, if you are going to take the effort of removing the intake manifold to get to the fuel lines, I would recommend doing the full Subaru fix. TSB shown below. One new metal line and one new rubber line required.
