My car hates me, this morning I decide to go a few miles to the store, and I notice I have a lot less gas in my car, then I smell gas really strongly, I get out at the store and see gas running under the rear passenger side of my car, I just filled it up too, and lost 1/4 a tank on the short drive home, I am glad I did not catch on fire somehow!
I found the problem, the line going from my fuel tank to fuel filter has a hole in it, sucks because the Dorman nylon fuel line tool I had to crimp new line and connectors on was sold because I thought I'd never need it again.
I started thinking, and dug into my stash of hoses and found some some proper rated fuel hose that was just a bit bigger than the fuel line, I also found one of my clamps made for fuel injection fuel line, so I cut a small piece of hose, then cut a slit to make it like a C that way I could slip it over the fuel line, I slipped it over the line, held the clamp and hose centered over the hose where the hole is, and tightened it down, re-pressurized the fuel line and see no leaks, so it is temporarily fixed, crisis adverted for now.
Now to come down from all the gas fumes I inhaled.
