Q: Gas leaking from underneath hose

asked by on

I have gas leaking from underneath a hose in my car.

If you have a fuel leak I would not recommend driving the vehicle until it is repaired as fuel leaks are a safety hazard. I would also recommend having your engine inspected by a professional to determine where the leak source is and have it repaired. Possible leak spots for fuel include the tank, the lines, carburetor, and the fuel filter. Ensure the technician inspects all of these items to be sure no other leaks exist to keep you safe when you are driving your car.
