DO NOT operate the vehicle if it's got a leak...use your nose~ under what circumstances did it start leakin'? if it was driving in a rugged country (not on roads) would suspect the leak to be underneath/near the fuel tank....if normal use would suspect a connection to the motor....use your nose to find the leak...might be a cracked filter housing....use your nose...do not use~
