Q: Fuel leaking out of car

asked by on

Fuel is leaking out of rear passenger's side.

The fuel lines and filter would have to be checked to see what is causing your leak. I recommend you do not attempt to drive the vehicle till having it looked at and fixed. The leak may pose a fire hazard. I recommend you have a mechanic, like ones from YourMechanic, to come by and do an overall inspection for the leak issue.
