Was walking by the car and smelled a gas odor, I checked under the rear passenger door/wheel and noticed the fuel tank(hose/clamp) was leaking a small amount of fuel.

2010 Base model, 6 speed

Do you believe it’s the fuel tank that needs replacing or just the hose and or clamp?

thanks

It sure looks like its a hose leak to me. Usually a hose leak appears around the clamp. The fact that it looks wet around the top of the clamp is a dead giveaway. If it were the neck that fits on the tank, I doubt it would make its way past the clamp and onto the hose like that. For reference, I'm attaching a picture of the filler hose on my 2012 Cube with just 40K miles on it. You can get a hose from Tascaparts.com. They sell new factory parts for well below what the dealer would charge.

…that was my first guess as well, my mechanic replaced it with a different hose and clamp and it still had the same leaking issue!

Unfortunately, the plastic piece that connects the hose and tank is not sold separately. Long story short, fuel tank is being replaced as I type this.

thanks for the reply and suggestion - appreciated!
