Fuel that is. Perhaps that would explain my 100km drop in gas mileage this past week.

It'* the metal line in a few places under the passenger side rear door.

So, what is involved in fixing this one. :(

Ouch, especially at the canadian price for gas. I am assuming this is the '96 model?

Well, if you can tell where the leak actually is and what needs replaced, that would help. There are metal lines that run forward, and there is metal lines that are part of the fuel sender. Hope it'* not the later.

This is the best I can do for now

Can the leaky sections just be cut off and replaced with rubber or something?

That has to be MS Paint. And I am guessing by the under of it that it is the 96? U need to get the '89 runnin. It'* still in good shape

ok.. we are under his 96, and that'* easy because hes posting in the 92-99 forum not 87-91.

That is the right rear area looking from the front left.

Cap... I think your sender is leaking and in need of replacing....but you'd need to drop the tank to double check that.

Where the "intense leakage" is does not look like the sender lines to me. Just the seperate lines.
