A little fuel will come out, nothing you should not be able to soak up with a rag or paper towel. It is not like there is an accumulated, pressurized volume trying to spray out - just that there is fuel at the injector and when you break the connections the fuel in the lines will run out if given an opportunity. Good luck and let us know how it turns out. Jim
