Ok im confused. Everyone responded like the drip is located near the rear fender. But it could be the front fender because there are several fuel related connections in that area. First the fuel tank vapor canister is located inside the fender just in front of the drivers door hinges. Second the fuel tank vent system has a control valve located near the ignition unit and third there is a return fuel heat exchanger nearby. All these lines have the potential to leak fuel. As I remember the only opportunity to leak fuel near the rear left fender is the aforementioned vent check valve and the hoses associated with it. So where is the fuel dripping exactly ??
