Where is your leak at?
I had one on the rear fuel line at the fuel rail, the 2 o rings in the quick connect went bad, and it was occasionally spraying fuel onto the back of my UIM, which could have went really bad, see this video for what happened with a similar leak, I think a faulty FPR also attributed to this explosion.

Thankfully there was no damage done, and I was lucky to find one parts store that had the Dorman repair kit in stock.

That'* why I leave the engine covers hanging in the garage, and keep a fire extinguisher in both cars.
I tried to repair the angled fuel line connector with the Dorman fuel line tool, and found that it won't work for repairing anything but straight fuel line, Dorman said they are working on trying to come up with something to work on the right angled connectors..
I ended up having to replace the fuel line from the rear of the fuel rail to the hard line at the firewall with some fuel injection rated hose, and proper clamps.
I think I see me needing to do all my nylon fuel lines in the future, and also I think I'll get me an extinguisher for the car now!

While I was under the rear I noticed a small bit of soft hose, looks like EVAP hose, so I guess it is coming from the EVAP line, the hose looks pretty big, and not like the EVAP hose I have on hand, but it is also dry-rotting, so maybe it expanded, I am going to try to replace it with the soft EVAP hose I have on hand, I know its inside is the same diameter as the EVAP line, and it will fit, so I am pretty sure that is all that really matters.

My feed line on my truck by the tank has a hole in it. I haven't fixed it because I haven't figured out the best way to get to it. I can't decide if I wanna drop a half full tank or pull up the bed.

I do enjoy buffing out a car.

If you need tips or pointers on how to do it. I'd be glad to help you out that way. It'* been years since I've been to NY. I was out by the Poughkeepsie area a few years back.

This is what I keep hearing. Only problem is, I don't have any air tools so I dunno if I'll be able to get the bolts to budge with just my strength alone.

i think i would drop the tank if i didnt have the tools, its tough to get back up on some trucks, and get all the connections made.

You can borrow my 4' cheater bar. Good for harmonic balancer bolts. If you have someone you really don't like, you can also use it to tighten wheel nuts.
