Q: Gas line leak

asked by on February 09, 2016

How do I know if I have a leak in my gas line?

Hello. You would know if you have a leak in your gas line because you would see gas leaking on the ground or a heavy has smell in the cabin of the vehicle. You would also notice your gas burning faster than normal. You should have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, come to determine the source of any leaks if you would like to have a leak repaired.
