Q: Car leaks gas

My car is leaking gas.

A: Determining where the fuel leak is coming f...

Determining where the fuel leak is coming from is important. Gasoline in vapor form is very explosive. The vapors can easily travel and linger. If they happen to make their way to an area of the engine where sparks occur there could certainly be a fire. I would stop driving the vehicle and seek the help of a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to determine where the leak is and repair it.
