Just noticed the smell of gas this morning, as I went into the garage to start my 81 coupe. I noticed a wet area on the garage floor as I backed out. It looked as thouogh it may be the fuel pump area. Any thoughts??

What ever the problem, get it fixed. Leaking gas spells danger It should not be difficult to determine where it's coming from.
My advice, don't drive it until it's repaired. Fire is an ugly thing.

Speaking of fire Ray, If this is your first Corvette be sure to have a fire estinguisher somewhere on board. Fire is truely an ugly thing. Carlo is right.... get it fixed now. It could also be a lose or cracked fuel line too.

Good Luck............. Nut

Gas Leak

When the diaphragm in the fuel pump goes bad it will leak fuel out of a small hole in the pump.. After you shut the motor off feel around the fuel pump for gas. Also check the rubber hoses at the pump etc.. Hope this helps.......
