Re: [DML] Gas leak from the accumulator hole area

The small steel lines under there are brake lines. It's possible that 
the fuel leak is washing off a slow brake fluid leak. The fuel filter 
can leak and fuel will run down the line and dust shields and drip onto 
the floor just near the accumulator.

I'd highly recoomend you not drive yuor car till you work out the source 
of both leaks, if indeed there are two.

The puddle on the ground is definitely gas though.  I think we all are familiar with the 87 octane that is engrained in our lungs.
