Problem found and is fixed..

There was about a .5 inch puddle of fuel, behind the shield for the gas lines. When I was at school, i was unable to see the fuel, due to be in a badly light parking deck.

The T-bolt clamp on the main hose from the gas lid, had worn it self loose. When I went to remove it to check on it the hose, it broke the rest of the way free. I replaced with a new clamp that was in my spare parts, and tighten both that one and the other T-bolt clamp.

Should be the end of this problem.. *crosses fingers*

Thanks for all the help
