If you don't have any CELs the first thing you should try is to tighten the clamps that connect the rubber fuel lines to the hard lines. This problem is pretty common. The picture below is a forester but it's the same deal, tighten all the clamps that look like the ones circled. Don't turn super hard (these little clamps break), just make sure they are all snug. There are a lot of them so make sure you check them all, there is a good chance this is causing your problem. Be sure to get the ones on the passenger side too like the ones underneath the bracket in the 2nd and 3rd pictures below. If you open the hood and sniff around while the engine is running you might be able to get a better idea where the leak is as well.
