    I have noticed an unusual fuel odor in the truck cab a few times now. I am not getting lower mpg or noticing hesitation or rough idle rpm's. The smell does not last long but never had this before.

    many stores will have kits available to replace these lines.

    I have seen the exterior of these metal lines look good with no rust but leak ...
