 Car Troubles

As of lately, I've been smelling gas fumes, but I can not trace the source. Aiding in the frustration is the inability to find any spots on driveways, or other spots of the car it may be dripping into. My gas mileage isn't too much different, but there's a change. My biggest fear is a slight pinhole or a very small leak by the filter and pump, because they are very close to the muffler. And today, what alarmed me the most was when I opened my door after work, it smelled like a gascan in my car, so I turned off my radio so no sparks in the trunk could do anything, just in case. I likely shouldn't be driving, but I need to get to work and there are no other means. Thanks.

Found the problem. Seapage coming through rust on my tank. I think it may be in the return reservoir, because it only leaks while running and after awhile. I think. Anyhow, I'm fixing*replacing* the tank, and selling the cavvy. In place will be a Camaro, or Firebird.

I was just gonna comment bout that but it looks like you found it. Those cars are notorious for the rubber tube at the filler neck coming loose and for the mounting part where the return line mounts the tank. R
