[DML] Re: I smell gas!

After I first got my car in April, I would get a gas leak on the 
ground in front as I filled up the car.  It turned out to be the clamp 
around the rubber boot the fuel pump sits in.  When I filled the tank, 
gas would fill up around the fuel pump, the leak put over the tank and 
onto the ground, past my 23 year old dried-up upper boot seal.  I 
tightened the clamp on the lower boot to stop the leak, and replaced 
the upper seal.  No more leaks since.

Perhaps your tank is full, and when on an incline, gas is spilling 
from the fuel pump boot area.  Just a thought.

Good Luck,
