It seems to have a gas leaks it smells like gas as soon as I start the car this morning I noticed a lil puddle under the car it looks like gas and smells like gas

The fuel lines are under pressure. The fuel pumps in today's cars are located in the tanks. Driving the car knowing that you have a gas leak is not a choice and the car will need to be fixed where it stands. If the car is inside the garage it only adds to the concern.

The most likely cause is animals like rabbits or squirrels or big mice have chewed on the gas line. It must be the ethanol in the fuel that attracts them.

At the dealer this is an expensive repair. A qualified garage with a certified technical may install a kit for less.. Squirrels Eating Wires and Fuel Lines

Your auto insurance may cover the expense and possible towing.

Gas smell

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Lumina with the 3.8L engine. In 2009 I also smelled fuel when I drove my car. My leak was located at the fuel rail output connector. Chev house said I had to replace the entire fuel line all the way back to the tank. Say what? I easily fixed the problem by installing a NAPA #7304922 3/8" Nylon Fuel Line Retainer (repair kit - $25).

Just wondering what I can use to repair the gas line on a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire? was told to use rubber repair kit or flare kit

No! you are working with fuel resistant rubber. Please dont mess around with factory fuel lines. Consult dealer or auto parts store for price and availability. Good luck, Best regards

Leak in gas line -there is a hole in the gas line and the repair kits have failed. what do I do now?

Use a small tubing cutter and remove the bad section of line. Replace with similar diameter steel line and use ferrule type brass unions on both ends.
Make sure that the area that you connect to is straight and relatively clean and rust free..

I got gas leak coming from the fuel line right above my fuel pump but nothing is broken, craked or loose and the pump is in perfect condition.. could a clogged fuel filter be the problem? its comin from...

First off, what kind of vehicle do you have? I assume it is one that has an electric fuel pump in the gas tank, so that is what my answer will be geared to.
On the gas tank there are several lines. The most important ones for this conversation are the ones that deliver fuel to the engine and the one that returns the excess fuel back to the tank. They are usually different in size.
The larger one delivers the fuel and the smaller one returns the excess fuel back to the tank. Either one may be the culprit in this scenero.The tank is usually connected by a high pressure flexible fuel line to a stainless fuel line resembeling a brake line. At times this flex line may develope a leak for varrious reasons. It could be something rubbing against the line, it could be the crimped connection went bad and is leaking, etc. If it is your flex line, which it probably is there is a repair kit you can purchase to fix it. I have only been able to find this repair kit at NAPA. I've tried many auto parts stores and they are the only ones that carry it. The use of it is very simple actually. You find the leak in your line, which by the way is harder than it sounds and usually involves removing the gas tank. In which case you will need a special tool to disasemble the gas line from the tank. Once the leak is located you cut the line. You then have to place the remaining flex hose in boiling hot water for at least 10 seconds, which makes it soft and insert a splice fiting into it. When the line cools, it will shrink tight on the connector. You the do the same with the hose that came with the repair kit. Then do the same with the other end and install the fitting which connects to the gas tank. You should now be in business.
BTW. I have to do this very thing tomorrow.
Good Luck! and let me know if this helps you.
