[DML] Re: Fuel Spill Problem

You may have popped the fuel pump off the top of the tank.  If you can
move it it's popped off.  Loosen the clamp and reseat it.

Suddenly one of the onloookers on the passenger side shouted.. "Hey,
you're leaking gas!"

the tiny "overspill containment area" around the intake.

open) the fuel gauge read above the 4/4 mark. Drove around to burn off
fuel and get below the 4/4 and parked the car. Not a drop on the pavement.
