    Have a independent shop diagnose this http://repairpal.com/directory?address=85742&car_brand_names=Subaru sometimes they can find something the dealer overlooked

    Check fuel filler neck for rust holes or loose clamps causing smell behind R/R tire.
    Also an aftermarket cap will not seal properly and will vent through the cap sealing surface
