Hey I’m just big on conservation and not throwing things into landfills, 06 grand marquis was gpas, any insight on this fuel leak? My eco-consciousness goes far, but 1200 for fuel tank repair on this is tough, while a fuel line at 100 is more my comfort zone.

Strap rusted and broke before I became aware of the prob. If the hole was at the top of the tank, I couldn’t make it out with the space created using 2x jack stands. Wondering if these pics are definitively either of them.

All insight is highly valued.

I have a 2004 Grand Marquis and had the fuel tank replaced at a local shop for 700 bucks that included new straps. Rock Auto, their best fuel tank is 146.79 . 1200 to put in a new fuel tank is ridiculous! Is that at a dealership? Not sure what kind of room you have doing it on jack stands. I had to have mine done because my brain says I can do it and my body says BS! Let us know how you make out.

I'd be suspecting both rust spots you focused on.

Hey, thanks for the insight! It was a Midas where I had my oil changed. The tech noted a fuel tank leak and they quoted me over the phone the next day. I bought some JB weld in the hopes that I would be able to find the hole. Came here after I was unsuccessful.

Yea, it was a mess under there! I got suited up, ski mask and protective glasses, still came out crying for a shower. Does anything here indicate fuel line or fuel tank? Fuel line repair I would probably spring for.

Any drips? If you've never seen a drip, it's likely to be the top of the tank, constant drips when idling, probably a fuel line. No guaranties in either case.
