Rusted fuel line or rotted rubber fuel line from fuel pump. Could also be fuel pump outlet is rusted. If fuel leak only occurs when key is turned on - this actvates the fuel pump and vehicle need not be running - then it would be one of the above. I had this problem on other vehicles as well.

has little to do with not shifting unless the leak is affecting the vacuum actuator for the transmission

96 honda shadow VT1100C fuel leak

if you always put as much gas as you can especially when its cheaper you are probably getting fuel into the fume emissions part of the entire fuel system. see if you can find a diagram of your fuel tank system to be sure its vacuum and not fuel. don't top off . its the worst thing to a fuel system

My honda civic 96 lx sedan has a leaking gas tank how much is it to replace the tank?

The cost to replace the tank will be the cost of a good one from the wreckers and the time to have it fitted.. However check that it is not a loose/ leaking hose first unless you have a hole underneath

My 1996 honda accord consumes too much fuel in a ratio of 1-6 km /liter, what seems to be the problem? I have it tuned up, cleaned the throttles, etc,, but to no avail. whats the best thing to do?

Since you've cleverly already done the normal tune-up items that preserve the 96 Accord's good fuel economy, its time to move onto the tougher adventures.

Cars with outrageously bad fuel consumption are losing fuel somehow (aka leaking).
(a) There's a fuel tank drain plug on the bottom of the fuel tank (used to drain tank for service) - make sure its tight and that the tank isn't leaking fuel there.
(b) check your fuel lines - there are 2 (one supplies fuel to the engine, and the other returns excess to the tank). If either is leaking, your car will lose petrol quickly.
(c) the evaporative fuel canister - instead of absorbing vapours, it may be full of fuel and leaking..
(d) check your fuel rail - its pressurized with fuel while the car is running - it may be leaking - and if it is: (1) the top of your engine will soon catch fire (2) the fuel may be evaporating as soon as it leaks, since the top of the engine gets so hot.

Use a fuel pressure gauge to test the fuel pressure in your 96 Accord's fuel rail - attach your
(with an appropriate (brass) adapter) to where the banjo bolt enters the top of the fuel filter - as
described in this passage from the Honda repair manual:

From the 1996 Honda Accord repair manual:
Note that this part of the Honda manual fails to mention that before you disconnect the negative terminal of the battery, you must note (and write down) the 3-digit radio lock code
--- begin excerpt ---
The Fuel System Pressure Specification

38-46 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch)Remove the ground cable from the negative battery post and also remove the fuel tank filler cap. Slowly release system pressure at the fuel filter and cleanup spilled fuel. Remove the Banjo bolt and install a fuel pressure test gauge. Reconnect the battery ground cable and proceed to start the engine and allow the system pressure to stabilize. While the engine is at idle, block off/pinch the number (1) vacuum line to the fuel pressure regulator and visually verify the fuel pressure reading on the test gauge.
--- end excerpt from 1996 Honda Accord repair guide ---

(e) possible leaking fuel pressure regulator - located at back of top side of engine, and looks like an
enlarged fuel filter - with hose clamps on either end clamping the fuel line. Retighten its bolts to 12 Nm (9 ft-lbs) when done checking it (for leakage).

(f) to move on from fuel - if you're getting only partial ignition, your fuel economy will suffer too - but you'll smell alot of unburned fuel in your exhaust (and get alot of backfiring). Use your HEI (high energy ignition) tester to rule out ignition (spark) problems.

I drive a 96 honda's been smelling like gas every time i drive it and seems to lose gas faster than normal. Would this be a possible gas leak? How much would this cost to fix approx.? I just...

hi, the problem is the gas could be leaking from several places the most common place is where the metal pipes come out of the tank and join to a rubber pipe this is the usual place of a leak.

But as you say you smell gas when you drive the car if you mean whilst driving the car you actually smell the gas inside the car then this indicates that the leak would be coming from under the bonnet as if it was leaking at the tank then you would only smell fumes when parked up or getting in and out the car.

Now as it looks like the leaks under the bonnet then the likely cause is going to be where the fuel pipe joins to the fuel injector rail as the engine vibrates and this pipe dont then this causes this pipe to split.

Now as for costs your looking at about an hours labor but as i live in the uk and hours labor here would be between 45 and anything up to 90 pound an hour depending on where you take the car (main dealers your looking at 100 pound to 150 pound per hour)
As for parts a piece of pipe would only be 5 pound or so so the actual pipe would not be expensive.

But you can never guarantee its going to be a strait forward job the leak may turn out to be a corroded metal fuel pipe from the tank this is not very likely but does happen from to time now this would cost between 25 to 35 pound for the pipe.

So you would have to work out the exchange rate to get rough figures but in uk i would say about 75 to 100 pound to do the work and get the car back to normal.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Many thanks for using
