Hello. The most common problem for fuel leaking under the car would be the plastic clips that hold the fuel filter to the fuel lines. These clips are small and become worn and break overtime. I would have a technician from YourMechanic come out and replace the fuel filter on the car. The clips that come on the new filters are bigger and should last longer. This will eliminate the possibilities for easy forming leaks in the future.
