On Monday August 11, 2003 I Noticed A Strong Odor Of Gasoline On My 1998 ford f-150 Pickup. I Found That Gasoline Was Running Along The Driver Side Frame And Leaking Rather Heavily Onto The Payment. I Immediately Drove To A Nearby Automotive Service Center For Examination. I Was Subsequently Advised That The fuel Line Had A Crack And Was The Cause For The Leaking fuel. According To The Service Technican The Crack Appeared To Be Unknown Including Any Damage. I Had Extended Warranty Insurance With Geico For The $277.87 Replacement Line. Since I Had A $250.00 Deductible, The Cost Was Mostly Borne By Me. The Owner Of The Service Center, Said He Never Had A Cracked fuel Line In All His Years Of Automotive Service. I Also In My 50 Years Of Owning Vehicles Have Never Experienced Such A Incident. My Biggest Concern Was The Extraordinary Danger This Type Of Leak Could Cause A Motorist, With Gasoline Leaking On To The Payment. Obviously A Discarded Cigaret Or Other Ignition Could Have Caused A Serious Fire And Perhaps Injury Or Death.i Would Like To Know If This Is Something You Are Interested? I Plan To Write ford, But In The Interest Of Public Safety, I Thought You Might Like To Know About My Experience. Sincerely, John Waters. *ak
