Helped out a friend yesterday install a fuel pump in his 02 GT. Well now he is saying that everytime that he turs to the left fuel pours out where the fill tube goes into the tank. Any reason why this is happening and how to fix it??
Don't want to thread jack but every time i finish driving my car and shut it off theres a strong smell of fuel. Car is off and it'll be in my garage i come in 2 hours later and it still smells like fuel. It's only after i've driven it, if i don't drive it for the day it won't give any smell. Theres no fuel leak anywhere, well i've never seen any wet spots under the car cause i've checked multiple times, anyone know what it could be?
the reason that this occurs is that when our cars were produced it was not common for oil refineries to use higher percentages of ethanol in their gasoline. Nowadays the higher consentrations of ethanol in the gasoline that we r putting into our cars is responsible for drying out the gas tank fill neck gaskets. Newer cars have gaskets that can handle the ethanol, we werent so lucky...
