I think it is coming from a metal hose. It is after the fuel pump, so it is only happens when the car is on. How much does it cost to replace/fix?

between $17.37 and $29000 :confused:

could be anything man... kinda like asking how loud you are going to be...

from a guess, it sounds like a fuel line fitting came loose somehow?

x2, probably wont cost nothign if u crawl under there and look at what the hose is doing and where its leaking and replace the line if there is a hole in it or just put it back on the hole where it was going

Be careful, gasoline can be dangerous.

Read this about gasoline safety:

FACT: 1 gallon of gasoline = 20 sticks of dynamite.

:fyi:

Yea I dont have time to take it to a mechanic until next week, because they arent open on Sunday.

It looks like a metal hose is cracked, and there appears to be another leak I cant see coming from above the gas tank.

yeah, youre probably going to want to make time to see a mechanic, or drive another vehicle... unless you like flames on your minivan (not even the hispanic kind...)

and WTF were you doing to crack your fuel lines?

Nothing.

I was just driving back from the grocery store and started smelling gas, and at first I thought it was where I had to fix the rubber hose before. The smell got worse and I looked and saw it was coming from a metal hose.

There is nearly 200k miles on it though.
