Just started to do this a month ago. Whenever gas tank is relatively full in my 2013 2.5 Outback, it makes the whole garage smell pretty strongly of fuel. If it is leaking somewhere, it isn't enough to not evaporate almost immediately, as I haven't been able to find any drips.

Is there a common fuel leak location or any particular place I should start looking?

I've had the car since new. I do have a bad habit of "topping off". Where is the evaporation canister, and how can I check or change it?

No wrecks/damage/work other than manual recommended 60k items a few months ago. Just started when it got cold, which I wasn't sure was a clue or not.

I'll definitely not "top off" next fill-up to see if that makes a difference. As of now down to 3/4 tank again and no smell anymore.
