A gas or fuel leak is a serious problem that should be addressed immediately. It is highly recommended that you do not drive your Mazda Protege until the leak has been safely inspected and repaired. With a situation like this, I always recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic to come by and inspect your Mazda’s fuel system in person. Once there, they will have the experience to quickly locate the source of the fuel leak, as well as perform the necessary repairs to eliminate the fuel leak and get you back driving safely.
