Failure/rusting of the fuel pump supply line and return line. This is part of the fuel pump assembly located in the fuel tank itself. Upon inspection after removing the tank from vehicle, the fuel pump lines were found to be rusted through. This was discovered after noticing a fuel odor, and upon further investigation, saw fuel gushing from the tank while the engine was running. Fuel was coming out at such a rate as to be a great danger to anyone around, and there was enough that if it occurred while waiting at a long traffic light or traffic jam, could have very easily resulted in a massive fire and subsequent damage, possibly deaths. The fuel tank is under the vehicle, just behind the seating areas, on the drivers side. The resulting fire may prevent the driver and drivers side rear passenger from escaping. I have kept the fuel pump and although the metal lines?tubes coming out the top of the pump were damaged in the process of removing the fuel lines that were attached, you can nevertheless see that these lines were totally rusted and are an accident waiting to happen.
