Default Fuel line leak - 1998 Honda Civic EX

Hi All:

I have small fuel line leak in my 1998 Honda Civic EX. You can smell
the gas only when the car has been driven. (Sometimes it is not driven
for a week at a time). Looking from the drivers side of the car the
the leak is located about the rear of the passenger door, and about
1.5 feet to 2 feet under the car.

Is this something that can be fixed by a do it yourself person with
little or no experience, or does it require a mechanic.

Well it depends. Do you got tools, a jack, and some jackstands? If so
you probably do it ur self. It's probaly leakin from a old broke
rubber hose, or possibly jus a broke plastic line connector piece. But
to find your problem ur gonna have to jack your car up fairly high ,
so you can lower your tank to find the problem. But there's a decent
amount of work to get to the tank lowering part. Your gonna have to
remove splash guards and they can be a pain at times. Removing the
rear tires makes the job easier. Hit up my website download yourself a
free manufacturers owner manual that will help you step by step,
pictures and all.

<snip spam>

no dude, the line's routed internally, not externally - you won't see
anything from underneath. and there are no plastic line connectors.
