SOURCE: Fuel leaks from filler pipe to gas tank

You don't need to replace the gas tank, the filler pipe is connected to a rubber hose which connects to the tank with clamps at each end.

SOURCE: I have a 93 Toyota Pickup that has a gas leak near

I've never had a problem with a sly leak-Usually I lose my gas tank driving over rocks, and you can see the remnants, or it's a cab-mount (No smoking, please!), but here's my advice: No matches! Take some water, add food colouring, and dump it on the tank. That way, the gas will push the water aside so you can see where it goes/comes from. My guess is right at the side facing front, or right up top, at the fuel vent or pickup line. Also check to make sure the fuel level sensor is tight, as is the fuel line entrance.

Smell gas not everyday no puddles no dripping


might be the RETURN line back to tank, most overlooked fuel line in the world, sends unburnt fuel & FUMES back to tank & or engine, recycled fuel. these lines rust, rot, subject to salt corrosion, etc., OR, vapor leaks from the evaporativeemissions control system (charcoal canister filter clogged) check condition of all hoses (vacuum) and fuel ...... or your main fuel line is leaking you just can't see it without a complete, thorough inspection !!!!! is fuel fliter leaking @ filter? connections ......

There is no leak of gas until the engine is cold. After starts dripping on the rear of the gas tank. Yukon 4x4 05. Is this return line or something else? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks


You will need to follow leak to pin point the leak to fix.Could be the seal that holds the pump in tank,could be fuel filter leaking and gas is traveling down fuel line to back of vehicle.Get a pair of safety glasses to look,could be return line.Can you do a video of the leak?

92 Jeep cherokee Laredo....u can smell gas while it's running and just after it's parked also after driving i can hear dripping coming from around the gas tank but haven't seen any dripping or...


The first and most important thing is to stop driving the vehicle IMMEDIATELY!

All modern cars and light trucks with gasoline engines use a relatively high pressure fuel system, with the entire system pressurized from the tank up to the engine, as well as a return flow circuit. Depending upon the nature of the leak, you have a serious potential for a disastrous fire to occur here, because the leak, if on the delivery side of the system, can spray the fuel out in a fine mist that will travel quite a distance and is very easily ignited. Return side leaks, while at a somewhat reduced pressure, are still to be considered a serious fire risk.

Older vehicles with engine-mounted pumps maintained the pump inlet line (the line from the tank) at a slight negative pressure while in operation, so leaks there were less serious while also being more likely to kill the engine.

Now ... as to the leak itself... All that you can do is to get under the vehicle and LOOK! There will visible evidence of the leak. It is possible that the leak is the tank itself, a line connection to the tank, the tank unit seal, or even the tank filler neck. However, if the leak occurs during operation and for a short time afterwards, but then stops, I'd bet on a delivery or return line problem.

Once the location of the leak has been pinpointed, the proper fix can be determined...

Smell gas in car


Look for fuel leaks in the engine bay or back by the tank where you fill up the the tank. A little bit of gas will go a long way so if you had spilled a little while removing the nozel at the gas station the filler neck will disperse of it, sometimes it gathers on the inside of the fender, and causing for a smell that may not be an issue. On the other hand if you notice the smell under the hood you may have a leaking fuel line, check to see if anyone has replaced the fuel filter recently sometimes the technician does not tighten the lines securely causing a little fuel leak. other times its just a little fuel spray from not releasing the pressure before removing the filter may have sprayed the fuel on the car onto maybe the insulation. One thing to do is look under the car while it is running myabe after filling it up to check for leaks. If your notice a drip while the A/C is running dont be alarmed as this is the condensation dripping off as it is supposed to.

Possible leak in a fuel line?


likely is a fuel line as your fuel pump is located in the gas tank... as it's is under fairly high pressure you should get it fixed as soon as you can
