I have a fluid leek which is brownish in colour it is dripping behind the front offside innerwing are there any pipes located there

there will be a drain pipe in tat area that drains the air box under the windscreen
the brown color could be rust
It is a high rust area as it collects the salt water from the roads and any leaf , clutter dirt etc which stays moist and sets up the rust process

Have a fuel leak from top of tank when refeuling

Did you check your fill tube, is this a hose or pipe? Also, check your evap system. When the problem is ongoing, can you get under the vehicle to visually see the leak.

Is there a vent hose you can check? Does 5 dollars fill it up?

Leak in front of petrol tank is it the fuel pump

I found a ..... leak. is that what you are saying.
comma , IS IT The pump leaking.
we dont know , we cant see , try photos?

there are many ways to get leaks,
id never guess. why one anyone on something so dangerous.
have you looked yet? or just see wet pavement.
To see top of tank? and where it leaks.?
dont park in doors, or BOOM.
out side, far from buildings say 50foot.

think about smokers and gas fired water heaters in garages.
there are 2 fuel lines
and many vents and parts that can leak , filler pipe and hose.
evap parts. lots.

What causes the petrol to leak everytimr i refuel?

The filler breather seems to be leaking. This is a pipe that comes from the top of the tank to the fuel filler hose very near to the tank cap. Also check the filler hose neck itself.

El fuel pump

IT might be either in the boot on top of tank OR on the rear of tank,
If on rear then drain at least 1/2 the tank out before undoing the clip ring which turns to the l/h/ to undo use a small piece of copper or brass or even good piece of timber but not steel ..
Undo and take out pump and filter To check pump wipe clean and dry and let it dry out for about 1/2 hr before fitting battery power to it for checking and if dont sound good straight away or the filter is dirty then new one is the answer..
REPLACE IT in the reverse of removal and make sure that the petrol pipes are fitted tight.
When you take the pipes off the back of pump then fit something in pipes to stop the loss of petrol .

My petrol gauge says I need to fill up but I can't

if you are sure the gas gauge was correct in that you needed a fill up then the problem is a restricted fuel tank vent pipe, this pipe runs next to the fill pipe and lets air out as the tank fills, if it gets obstructed for any reason like a kink then u get the slosh back hard fill issue you are experiencing

Fuel leaking from flexi pipe beside passenger rear

The only thing i can think of is, its a vent tube of some sort, but i can't understand why it comes out from under fuel tank, unless it runs from top of tank around under tank and back up and it looks like its commimg from bottom of tank.

Petrol leak

Easily! The whole rubber surround can be replaced with a new one. The parts are cheap, but you might want to get a mechanic to do it anyway. It's not usually glued in or anything, just press-fitted.

Every car i've ever seen with a bad fuel smell and/or fuel leak up in that area has been a result of a cracked rubber seal.
