If it's not even 2 years old and you're having a problem then I'd say you bought a piece of crap


So no warranty left? If not have a look starting at the fuel rail and work your way back. Perhaps a loose fitting at the main line to rail being stretched. Other ideas/thoughts if it only happens after filling up and if topped off the charcoal canister/evap might purge raw fuel out. Also whoever checks it out they might want to look at the seals on the tank where the fuel pump sender(s) If all that checks out I would do a leak down test at the rail to see if perhaps the o-rings for the injectors are seated properly. That's about all the ideas for now. Good Luck!
