 I noticed a strong odor of gas coming from under the truck. i only noticed the fuel leaking when the truck was on a downhill grade. i climbed under the truck to see where it was coming from. it turns out that the fuel leak is coming from the return line on the frame under where the fuel filter is attached. that section of the fuel line is totally corroted and fuel is slowly dripping from it. i am taking it to my mechanic tomorrow for repair. the brake line right above the fuel line is also severly corroted. gm really needs to recall and fix these issues due to these corroted fuel and brake lines. i will never buy another gm product again.

 Severe corrosion of the brake lines became apparent during a sudden application of the brakes which caused multiple brake lines to rupture and leave the vehicle with no brakes since a line from the master cylinder to the abs unit front left input and the abs to the rear t line blew simultaneously. when removing the damaged brake lines they literally crumbled to pieces due to corrosion. during the repair to the brake lines severe corrosion was noted on the fuel lines also.

 The fuel gauge and low fuel warning system on my 1999 gmc sierra pickup has not worked for many months. i have been told by a service facility i trust, that this is a common problem, is costly to fix and most likely will fail again soon. they thought that this should be a recall issue. *nm

 The first time i bought the vehicle it overflowed fuel when i filled the fuel tank to it's capacity. i assumed a vent line was loose, but knew it would be a big job to drop the fuel tank and check, so i just limited the amount of fuel i would fill the tank with. on jan 5, 2007, the fuel pump quit working and after dropping the tank no vent line was found to be loose. upon further investigation, i determined the fuel pump mounting flange on the tank was about half connected, thus where the fuel would leak from when the tank was filled to capacity. it appeared the mounting flange is fused on and there was not an adequate bon made. it was on about 1/32 wide for 180 degrees and only about 1/16 wide the other 180 degrees. i have since repaired the tank using a product called jb weld and also installing (4) #10 machines screws with washers and locking nuts holding the flange to the tank. *jb
