So I smelled fuel on my way home from work and sure enough I was leaking fuel under the car near the passenger seat. Logically I thought it was just the fuel lines because that's the only source of fuel in that general area. After replacing the fuel lines it still leaks from the same spot. Has this ever happened to anybody before? Any help would be much appreciated!!

If you are sure of the lines, check the joints in the bay. I had a leaky joint where the hose coming off the feed line was weeping fuel, which was running back down the fuel line and eventually coming out of the frame rail.

Have also had fuel filters rupture a seem and spray fuel out while the system was pressurized.

Hi, could you respond with what you found to fix this problem?
I have a fuel leak in the same location you mention and am trying to trouble shoot it.

If anyone else knows the answer please chime in.

Thanks
