Unhappy 2004 WRX Wagon Fuel Smell

If it's really cold (it's less then 20 degrees F), I can smell gas until the engine heats up and then it goes away completely. I noticed it a couple of times last winter when it was super cold as well.

I notice that someone had what seems to be the exact same problem a couple years back in this forum and I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a service bulletin that I'm missing. Trying to decide if I should take my car to a dealer or a reputable local mechanic. (Smell of Gas?)

Thanks in advance for any help

First, thanks for using the search feature.

Second, I'd take it to the dealer. Might cost you a little more but they "should" be able to find the problem quicker. Might just be something as simple as the injector o-rings.
