We drove our subaru forester (2003) about 100 miles today in 0 degree weather - as we were coming off the highway the car started smelling like gas. We took it out again and the smell is still there. Any ideas? Help~!

I would start by tightening all the clamps on the fuel injection hose in the engine compartment. Cold tends to make hoses shrink and leak. If you can't find it get help as it could lead to a fire.
