Gas leak through the left side

Hi everyone,
I have a 05 LT and today while driving i smell a strong smell of gasoline and saw a huge leak on the bottom right (above the foot rest). Did anybody had that before and what can be done?
Thank, Sal

Sal,

Sounds like the fuel quick connects have gone bad on you. This is a pretty common problem and fairly easy to address.

Take off the side tupprware and you will see the fuel connects at the base of the tank.

Re: Gas leak through the left side

What usually breaks is the male part right at the engagement groove. If it is not broken then you may have a damaged o-ring.
