Unfortunately for my car's paint, the fuel filler cap was leaking a bit. I noticed some gas running down the side of my car, and when I opened the cap to check it out, fuel literally gushed out. I'm talking a gallon, minimum. As if there was pressure built up inside the gas tank. Does anything look wrong in the venting? I haven't changed anything in the year or two that I've owned the car, so I'm wondering why it happened now. The vent hose in the filler neck goes to the expansion bottle. Nothing is cracked or leaking as far as I can see. Whoever repainted the car a few years back obviously didn't prep the area under the filler cap well, hence the awful paint peeling problem I'm dealing with now. Sigh.
