I've had my '76 Stingray for three weeks now. All this time I've smelled a gas odor when I'm around the rear of the car. This evening I found the problem. Lifting up the rubber around the fill nozzle I located the return and gas lines on top of the tank. I started the car and sure enough there is a steady leak coming from one or both of those lines (hard to tell) but can see gas dripping from rubber line steady when car is running only.
I have set Saturday aside for fixing this. I am not a gifted mechanic. I can't see any other way to replace the hoses other than dropping the tank.
I could use someone's experience doing this to pipe in. Thanks

Thanks Buster.
It took me all day to replace the 2 ft. rubber lines on the tank. The gas line was the one leaking but did both. Your right, the straps were a pain. I did it myself and it was as bad as I thought it would be
