hi, i'm currently at college and have found my car to be leeking petrol. I've managed to get under it and found that near the drivers side wheel theres a silver metal cylinder. Same size as a coke can. Soon as i turn the ignition on i get petrol pissing out of the cylinder through a hole the size of a pin head. But the pressure behind it is so much that i've lost half a tank of petrol since yesterday lunch. Now i want to get this patched up asap til i can get the part replaced. Any suggestions as to patching it? And can i remove the pipes leading into it to get the part off and fix it inside college. Suggestions would be really helpful right now. Thanks.

its your fuel filter £10 part and most motor factors will stock it or get it from vauxhall, the clips on the pipe are a ***** to get off without a special tool

Managed to steal some out of the college office. They asked for me to return it once i was done with it. Haha, best of luck with that.

Strangely, the car parked next to me, my mates Arosa, has a hole in the roof. About 20mm wide thats currently patched up with blue tack. Talk about bodge jobs!
