Yikes! Brings back memories of that sort of thing happening to me about 25
years ago while driving my GT6+. Bad news is that it happened in the parking
lot of the Kmart I worked at back then. Good news is that this particular
Kmart had a good (for them, then or now) automotive section. I was able to
run in and buy some blister-packaged fuel line and small hose clamps and stop
the leak in (relatively, since it was a cold parking lot and I was working
underneath with only the factory scissor jack for support of the car) short
