Leaky gas line

Leaky gas line

When your car's old enough to drink, sometimes key components spring a leak.

Our mechanic fixed two holes in the gas line before Thanksgiving, but vibrations during servicing busted an even bigger cavity into the rust. Now, when we stop at a gas station, liquid hits the pavement on its way into the tank.

After fillups, there are no leaks...unless the front of the car is higher than the rear. So, until we get hole number three fixed, there will be no more parking on hills.

Bobby --- Well, clearly, we'll only drive down hills. :-) (More seriously, we hope to get it fixed ASAP, but our mechanic was swamped when Mark dropped by yesterday, so we thought we'd wait until the post-holiday rush was over.)

After a 3rd hole, I would look into replacing the line. Most good autopart stores carry flexible fuel line that is cheap.
