[DML] Re: fuel leak

Bob - Very early in my DeLorean experience, I developed a very similar 
sounding leak ... while traveling through Deerlodge, Montana on a 
Sunday afternoon.  We had to drive straight through back to Seattle 
while dripping gas the whole time.  The leak turned out to be a split 
in a flared end on the hard fuel line that goes from the accumulator 
to the filter.  I simply had a high-pressure fuel hose made locally, 
and bypassed the cracked line.  I had no interest in lifting the body 
from the frame to replace the line.  If your leak is coming from the 
accumulator area, there really is no choice but to perform surgery 
through that small opening.  Good luck!
