Im not using my front fuel tank because it has a leak, just using the rear tank,but fuel is still going to front tank,please help, fuel selector switch is on rear tank ?


You have 2 problems. First is, the leak, fix it. Second is the actuator / fuel solenoid on the frame is bad also. You shouldn't get fuel to the other tank when you switch from front to back.

Finding fuel leak options with very little fuel in tank, leaks with addition of $5 worth of fuel?


Surely you can see the fuel on the outside of the
fuel tank or a rusted fuel tube under it

You should be able to find that issue in 10 minutes
IF you get under it

That is only 2 gallons added at a time

Wouldn't you think the fuel tank is the issue,if
it leaks without the motor running

Now you also know we can not guess from here

Smells gas into passenger cabin


Check the evap system /canister behind the drivers rear tire,the brackets rust out and pull lines off.also check front purge valve on top of the gas tank,reach up on top of tank by end of back door and see if its wet.Im assuming you checked for leaky steel lines.also check the fuel pressure regulator on the engine.My 2 95 blazers have had these problems over the years

Going threw to much gas


You either have a gas leak or a thief. Check the gas lines that run under the car and the connections under the hood

My son has a 1995 Ford F150 5.0 dual tank truck. there are two issues that i am having, 1. The truck leaks gas bad and can not find the location of the leak. 2. It seem that the two tanks have been...


If you're doing it yourself, what you do is find a good spot to park it where you can wiggle under it and you crawl around and find the leak. You're going to be under there for a few minutes so make it a comfortable spot.

If the truck leaks all the time, running or shut off, then you'll find the leak at a level lower than the tank or in the tank itself.
.
If it only leaks when running then it's going to be a fuel line, the valve that switches tanks (likely) the lines coming out of the tank (also likely) or under the hood somewhere. Find the wet spot and look up from there, that's how you start. Maybe the leak isn't obvious, if it's dripping off the frame or a crossmember then you have to look around and see where it's coming from. If it's dripping off the tank, only when the fuel is being pumped, then you'll find rotten steel lines coming out of the top of the tank.

With a truck of this age, you can solve a lot of current and future problems by buying enough 3/16" or 1/4" fuel hose and just replacing all the fuel line between the tank and the motor. Zip-tie it to the frame as you go, don't pinch it hard- just enough that it can't move and wear a hole in the hose. Keep the hose where it's safe from road debris- on the top rear of crossmembers and tucked back into the lower corner of the frame rails.

Gas is shooting from inside of gas tank over muffler, when you try and start dodge caravan


Sounds like one of the lines from the fuel pump is leaking. They come attached to the fuel filter. Replace the fuel filter.

Fuel problem


Hi. you may have two issues here. you may want to check the fuel pump o ring for lose or worn fit. i would also do a line check from the tank all the way to the engine. make sure your lines are ok. if all checks out, this may be isolated within the tank hull. replace the fuel tank if a leak is present.
