Troubleshooting ATV fuel leak

how to find an ATV fuel leak?

Our ATV developed a fuel leak recently.

A visual inspection revealed what looked like a spot where it was dripping and clearing away mud, and above that was a hose clamp that needed tightening.

The plan is to add a small amount of fuel with newspaper spread out underneath to see if the leak is fixed.

No ATV but scooter had gas leak. Start peeling off plastic body panels and use good flashlight and trace back.
