Hello, Spotting a major gas leak under your car is not something to be taken lightly. Gasoline is a flammable, hazardous liquid and a leak in you car is a repair that needs to be addressed immediately. There are numerous components in your Mitsubishi that can fail and cause a leak. These include such situations as a rubber fuel line failing or the seal to the fuel pump failing. It is also possible that road debris could have bounced up into your Mitsubishi’s undercarriage, causing damage to a fuel line or even puncturing the fuel tank itself. Since these concerns need to be addressed immediately, I would highly recommend enlisting the help of a certified mechanic to look over your Mitsubishi and give a proper diagnosis of your gas leak issue as soon as possible. They will properly find the location of the leak and provide all repairs so you can feel safe once more in your car.
