My husband and I did a little shopping Wednesday afternoon and then stopped for an early supper before heading home -- or so we planned. As we backed out of our parking space we noticed a strong smell of gas and assumed it was the SUV passing behind us. But as we moved about 50 feet forward the fumes only became stronger -- so we stopped and hopped out of the car immediately. A quick check under the front of the vehicle showed gas just pouring out onto the ground. We we moved the car into the closest space and turned it off. Looks like one of the fuel injectors disconnected from the rail and just let the gas pour through. Fortunately we didn't blow up (now that's something to be grateful for!) and AAA towed us home. Today my husband and son have their work cut out for them seeing if they can make the repair.
But we had a great Thanksgiving meal enjoyed by all and are looking forward to a year of blessings and leftovers tonight!
Make it a great day!
