    I have a 95 gt.It sat for five years and now I have time to make it run.The gas tank was funked up and everything in it.I replaced everything.I tried to start it but I smelled fuel.I got out and did a walk around.lots of gas on the ground at the rear.I dropped the tank and had a friend turn the key on.The supply line is leaking.Do I need to replace the fuel line?
    Thanks

    My suggestion is if the line is leaking and you see it leaking . Replace it .

    Where is the leak? Usually the only things to replace are the connectors and retainers.

    Is it at the tank exit? Is it supply or return line? Is it at a connector?

    Also just so you know they make special line removal tools for the AC and Fuel lines on these cars . You can buy the set of tools at most auto parts stores for around 10 bucks .

    Where the supply line pushes on the hat.It feels loose where the return line is tight.
