Gas leak. Very dangerous situation. Stop driving this car until you find the leak.
small hole in the tank or in lines ..even rusted lines
Only if the leak is large enough that enough gas is not getting to the engine. Otherwise, it should run but very poorly.

The fuel filter and lines are in front of the tank on a Dodge Shadow.
You could have a leak in your gas lines somewhere. My guess is when you start your vehicle and the fuel pump is operational, the pressure is forcing gas through a small pinhole leak. Check any fuel lines that are rubber for cracks, wear, breaks and replace as needed.
replace the carbon canister
Repair the pipe of fixture to stop your leak.
Vaccum leak or bad gas!
Yes the lines can leak when they rust through.
You are looking for a vapor leak from the fuel system. Check the gas cap, lines and hoses from the tank to the engine.
Large emission vapor leak. Check the gas cap and all lines from the tank to the engine.
Do a tightness test on your gas meter and the presure will drop if you have a leak.
If you smell gas from your vehicle it probably indicates a leak. Even a tiny leak will produce a fuel smell. If there is nothing obvious leaking from the fuel lines, pull the vacuum hose off the fuel pressure regulator, if there is any smell of fuel there or if gas is present, it is leaking and needs to be replaced.
If you mean gas as in vehicles, then yes. If you were to have a leak or a dirty fuel filter, this could damage your gas lines or pump. If you have your fuel pumped replaces they will need to replace all of the lines as well. This means it will cost you about 400 dollars and its not a job you can do yourself.
gas lines going to the furnice, gas train, gas valve, all by burners, but to check corectly you need a lighter (not recommended but still used by old school guys) or a gas detector.
If your refurring to the fuel pump then yes, there is a gasket for it.
Okay, a fuel leak can occur at any point in the fuel lines, which on an olds are probably alluminum pipes from the tank to the firewall, at which point they turn to a rubber hose to the injectors or carbeuretor. (You have injectors). If you want to find it yourself, grab a few rags, some flour, and a few hours free time. Follow the fuel lines from the gas tank, and wipe them clean and dry. Dip out some flower, and coat the lines. Anywhere fuel leaks after running the lines should be visible as a wet flour clump.
