    Possible issue

    Okay my car is exactly two weeks old - the past two times I have filled up i have noticed that a puddle the size of a home doormat appears right directly under the right rear tire - like below where the gas tank is but closer to the tire - now my question is......I obviously have not been over filling the damn car, so is it possible that a have a hose leak going to the tank - because the car does not ever leak anything when I am driving or when its parked - ONLY when I am filling it - not even right after i fill it - its so damn wierd........anyone else ever have this problem/know what the hell it could be????? - thanks- Dan

    I would bring the car back to the dealer and have them check it out since you've only had the car for 2 weeks.

    Doing that this week - just wanted to see if anyone knew about this problem cause I like to know things before the dealer does - that way I can give them a better description - the saturn techs loved it when I described exactly what was happening with technical info cause it made their job easier - and i liked knowing because I could check and see that the job/work was done properly and they did not just tell me "oh we fixed it" - I know these guys are paid to know their stuff but I don't trust anyone at dealerships ever (my dad owned two dealerships when I was younger so I know how the business works unfortunately)- thats why I made the general manager sell me the car instead of a sales guy. - By the way - thanks CNK - you are always one of the first to help with questions and i appreciate that - dan

    No problem Dan. There's a filler tube that goes from the gas cap to the tank. . .there are drain holes at the bottom of the filler top so that excess fuel when you take the pump out can drain. Unless you've been filling up at the same pump at the same gas station, I would say there's something loose or there's a hole some place. If it was the same pump/station, then I'd try a different station. . .never know, maybe the pump is defective.
