Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
Not sealant But get small length of rubber hose,,, small ,as in just larger than metal line then get two small screw band clamps cut the leak spot with bolt cutters QUICKLY insert hose on two ends of line with CLAMPS ALREADY ON HOSE screw them tight stop at service dest inform them of gas leak so they can take precautions.
they will ask fix or replace say FIX so they don't chage you $120 an hour shop time to bend fuel line hose to replace entire line... NOT necessary..old school repair if fine replace line is $$$ and not neccessary very little pressure in fuel line mostly gravity flow you may even say its more practical

Dont use rubber for a patch gas eats rubber in turn will get into your fuel system causing more problems, if the steel line only has a hole and the line is still good i would cut the bad part out and use a compression fitting they work great no clamps no tape it fixes it. 10 minute job . if you dont know what a compression fitting is here is one to look at. Ive added a video on how they work this video is for plumbing but it shows you how theywork. they are a great fix cheap to.

The only temporary repair on a fuel line that is advisable would be to purchase fuel hose and injector style hose clamps.Remove the leaking section and connect the hose to the ends you have cut out,These systems can really build fuel pressure so anything else will probably not hold.The suggested repair would be to replace the steel line with another steel line possibly a union if there is a good section of usable steel line that can be reflared.
