Need more info. Where is it leaking? Rear of the car? Middle of the car? Engine bay? This will help you get possible answers.

You probably need to get under the car and look at the area you see wet with fuel.
I’m sure you’ll easily see the leak and what you’ll need to fix.

Re: Camaro leaked gas

Check all visible connections for leaks.Next drain and drop the tank and inspect hoses, sending unit seal and for cracks on the tank.I had a problem in which someone had installed the incorrect sending unit which required a return line and pinched and put epoxy at the end.My car has only one line.After owning the car for a couple of years it started leaking from the top of the tank.Dropped tank and installed the correct sending unit.

Re: Camaro leaked gas

Replace all rubber non fuel injection hoses if your using ethanol gas. Ethanol eats the OEM type lines from that era.
