    well i would say u need to have this put up in the air and that leak checked, at the price of fuel you can loose allot of money.

Had same problem on my 86 CJ7. Turned out the rubber gas tank fill tube was cracked. It was a pain to get on but did it without dropping the tank. Good luck.

Never mind the cost of fuel, think of the flash that will take place if you park up after filling up and someone sparks a light near it.

If you have any respect for yourself and those around you the car needs to be in a repairshop.

There is gas leaking around the gas cap in my 2006 Toyota Highlander. It is not the original cap; replaced it due to an alert "Fuel Lid Open". I do not top off my tank. This has never happened before


Try to look inside the fill spout. Should have a a back flash or back flow stopper.Gas shouldn't be coming out then it would be a factory defect.

Fix or repair gas leak.


no rino lining will not withstand gas. J B Weld has a product that will work but generally once a gas tank has corroded enough to leak you are better off changing the tank

You may have leakings fuel line on top of gas tank when filling up or line is leaking where they connect to fuel filter under body maybe behind rear wheel wells , or may have a leaking furl injector or even your carbon gas canister filtr need chaging or ovver filling can send fuel up to that canister which recirculates gas fumes back to fuel system check your gas cap maybe leaking or when gas attended over filling it runs down into drain tube

Leaking gas tank on 06 pontiac g6 gt


This is something that is hard to answer without looking at your vehicle.I have seen some of these leak around the filler neck spout at the tank and others leak at the fuel level/pump module. or it is possible ran over something. either way if you have a gas leak it is not safe to drive. if experienced look at tank and see where leaking if running down from the top it is most likely the fuel module(pump) hope this helps some

2005 Nissan Pathfinder - started with the last gas fill up, now the smell of raw gas, strongest in the drivers seat ? 71,000 km. Whats the deal ?


If you overfilled, you seal around spout at tank may be leaking,

You may also have a small hose leak, coincidence with the last fill up.

Your gas lines run under drivers side

Where is the fill plug on the diffirential on a 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo"


How to Fill a Rear Differential
You may need to add fluid to your differential due to leaks or changing seals, or it may be time to change out the gear oil completely. Either way, it's just a few steps to fill the rear differential and get your vehicle back out on the road!This article will explain how to fill a rear differential. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions and Things You'll Need:
  • 3/8 inch drive ratchet with extension
  • 2 quarts gear oil (gear lube, differential fluid)
  • Side cutters
  • Oil drain pan
  • Shop rags
  • Flashlight or shop light (optional)
  • Lock tight (optional)

Filling a Rear Differential
  1. Be sure the car is raised on four jack stands and is level. It will be more difficult to fill the differential if you've only got it raised in the rear.
  2. Place an oil drain pan underneath the plug to catch any leaks or drips. Keep shop rags handy for any spills.
  3. Check your service manual for the amount of fluid your differential needs, if you're completely refilling the system. Two quarts should be enough in most cases.
  4. Remove the spouts on the gear oil containers. Peel off seals, then replace spouts. Use side cutters (or any cutting tool you've got handy) to clip off the top of each spout.
  5. Remove the differential fill plug using a 3/8 inch drive ratchet with extension. (Some models may require a hex key or screwdriver, but the 3/8 inch is the most common plug design.)
  6. Take the gear oil container and fit the spout into the fill hole. Pour the fluid inside. You can gently squeeze the bottle to speed the process. Repeat with a second bottle if necessary.
  7. Fill the differential until the fluid starts draining back out of the hole.
  8. Clean and replace fill plug. Use lock tight (thread locker) to help seal if desired. You can see my eHow article "How to Replace Rear Differential Fill Plug" (video) for more information.
  9. Take the car for a drive around the block to get the gear oil moving. When you return, check underneath for any leaks from the fill plug or differential cover.
Hope help with this.

2002 mazda miata mx5 has strong gasoline smell in trunk. Had smoke test done at dealership and showed no leaks. Help.


The fill pipe is right back there. Check to see if a hose has been damaged. Check the spout area, is there a overflow pipe or a seam that could be leaking into the trunk?

Gas Leaking


There is likely a rust hole, or puncture in the neck of the gas tank (the pipe leading from the tank to the gas nozzle). When you are filling the tank the gas runs through the pipe and leaks out of the neck. when you are done filling, all the gas is in the tank, and not high enough to come out of the hole. You can probably pull the cover off the inside of the wheel well, and see the leak. if your lucky, you will be able to patch the hole.

Gas leaking on top of tank


its most likely either broke the seal on the halfway of the tank or the fill spout has become damaged and needs replacement. id start by testing the pressure of the tank then deciphering whether or not its the tank or the fill spout.
