Most often the leak is at the fuel line connection at the carb. Replace this gasket and check the fuel filter at the same time. Do not use thread sealant! Do not drive it with this leak!! Frankster016

Diagram "fuel system" 1984 Chevrolet G-30

I usually just buy steel fuel line of the correct size and use the old line as a guide to bend up the new one. Cut off excess and make new double flare. Much cheaper than trying to buy stock part.

Is this truck carbuerated or throttle-body injected? If carbuerated, I'd put in a new carb kit...and be sure to replace the accelerator pump. Ethanol in gas today wreaks all sorts of havoc with older vehicles because the rubber and plastic parts manufactured back then were not designed to deal with the problems caused by ethanol. After rebuilding your carb, buy a product called Seafoam and add it to your gas tank at the rate of 1oz per gallon of gas. It will partially offset the problems caused by ethanol.

Smell of gas while driving is very noticable inside of the car.

Sounds like one of the rubber hoses in the engine bay may be leaking. Could also be a leak somewhere around the carbuerator or fuel injectors.

Turn on the car and look/smell your engine bay. Look for anything that may indicate a leak or try and follow your nose. Leave running for awhle, and if you still can not find it, turn car off, and check all lines again.

Not getting fuel to digital carbuerator

Replace the fuel pump.If you live up North then in some cases where the air is real cold and nippy the fuel lines will actually leak flaky gas into the pump without it on to pump it to the carb, therefore corrosion and rust seize the Fuel Pump until it doesn't turn on when the key is in the 2nd position.

1992 lumina smokes out of heater, consumes more gas

your heater core has probably sprung a leak.does the smoke smell kinda sweet?....check the floor in the front where the floor mats are for moisture or even puddles of antifreeze.(the replacement of a heater core can be very expensive as the entire dash usually needs to be removed to access the heater core)also look under the engine near the firewall for antifreeze drips.
