Put gas today, smelled strong order of gas drove home, went through almost a quarter gas, in about 5 miles then i stopped and it was leaking alot of gas from the bottom of the engine. Is it safe to drive it to the mechanics? The drive is only 6 minutes away.
My car has 2000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there - NO, it is never safe to drive a vehicle with a fuel leak. Fumes are more likely to ignite than liquid, and any spark or exposure to a hot exhaust can instantly create a fire! Better to have the mechanic come to you. I recommend a fuel leak inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
