Q: Gas dripping off fuel tank

asked by on

I have gas dripping off of the fuel tank.

Hello. If you have fuel leaking at the gas tank then the most common cause of the leak is either the fuel pump line or the tank seal. Most of the time the connection on the fuel pump fractures and causes this leak. The tank would need to be dropped to repair this. If you are going to have this fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to find the leak and repair it.
