Your gas tank's filler hose is cracked or leaking. Inspect and replace immediately, this is a major fire hazard!

Why is fuel leaking from behind rear driver side wheel?


Paul; You probably have found the leak, which was a repair made by somebody else in the past. Ensure leak, rusted out, or crack is cut out of steel line before making below repair and follow all safety precaution when working around flammable fuels.
To do a cheap repair which is not necessarily the best remove and replace existing hose and clamps. Go get a length, enough (high pressure) rubber fuel hose, (4 gear clamps) to put over hose to double clamp connections on both ends of hose. This repair could last the life of the car easily.

I have 2010 mitsubishi endeavor milage is only 54695 it burns lot of gas


1) you might want to check the fuel filler tube to see if there any rust, resulting in fuel leaking out whenever you filled the tank.
2) check the fuel tank fill-up hose (sill hose) might have a hole- causing fuel leak when filling up the gas tank.
3) you might want to contact your dealer, there was a recall regarding the tank filler pipe and cap problems.

I am having a leak on the fuel feed line on the 2000 oldsmobile silhoutte I need help with fixing it what can you suggest


Usually, fuel feed lines have O-rings inside. Over time these O-rings get got and flatten out. Depressurize the fuel system, then replace the O-rings and put the hose back on. Test for leaks.

Fuel tank leaks when filling at the pump


I'd check the clamps on the filler tube hoses. Also check to see if they are kinked, especially the small hose.

Gas leaking out where you fill the front tank


You probably have a defective fuel-tank selector valve. Its located on the left frame rail, halfway down. While the vehicle is running, tank"A" is pumping fuel to the engine, while tank "B" is getting the unneeded fuel that is returning from the engine. Thats why it is overflowing.

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.
