SOURCE: Fuel leak

The carb/s are flooding , you will have to check the float pin and the float, a good clean with compressed air should do the job, check too the fuel line and the fuel filter.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 1979 dt 175 lower fuel overflow line is leaking

Two possibilities.
1. Your float needle is leaking (most likely). Remove the carb, remove the float bowl. You will see the float itself and it has a tang that touches the float needle. Remove the float and inspect the needle and its seat for dirt or wear. You could try gently tapping the float bowl first, as this may dislodge and dirt, but thats a short term solution.
2. The float level is incorrect. You will need to bend the float tang to adjust. However, find out the float height for your bike first.

2000 fuel lines

There is only one gas line. It will come from the gas tank to the engine compartment, connect to a filter. Another fuel line will leave the filter and go into the engine.

It is extremely dangerous to work with spilling gas. Do not try to start the vehicle as the electronics and spilling gas could easily start a fire and explosion. You need to trace the gas line and determine where it is leaking to fix it.

Ford f 150 dual gas tank drawing from both tanks at the same time

Replace the fuel deliver valve, it is under the truck on the drivers side, it is a black plastic canister with lots of plastic lines going in and out of it. If you find this is the problem disconnect one line at a time, don't take everything off at once and mix them up.

I inherited a 2004 BN125 that now leaks gas when started from tube that is located next to battery overflow tube

If overflow tube is leaking its due to too much fuel in petrol tank or could be a loose fuel pipe make sure its an overflow pipe not a fuel pipe just leaking

Gas leaking out where you fill the front tank

You probably have a defective fuel-tank selector valve. Its located on the left frame rail, halfway down. While the vehicle is running, tank"A" is pumping fuel to the engine, while tank "B" is getting the unneeded fuel that is returning from the engine. Thats why it is overflowing.

Gas leak

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR CAR until this problem is identified and repaired. !!!!! Your fuel lines run up along the drivers side and into the engine bay. One of those lines is leaking. If you drive at all, you are in serious risk of having the vehicle go on fire!!! Your fuel system is pressurized and can leak substantially. This is not something to mess with.!!!!!!!!!!
