Leaking Betty 2CV

Brendan McGinty writes:

Betty is the car Tim and I bought. At the moment we are not sure whether or not we keep this name. At 4 o'clock this morning my wife woke me to say there was a terrible smell of petrol. Still dark I opened my back door to be met with horrendous petrol fumes, £20 of petrol was now leaking on my drive. What do I do? got the hose pipe and ran water under the car to dampen the fumes, 5 o'clock pushed car out to the end of my drive to let the petrol leak on road. hose pipe still under car to dilute the fuel.
7 o'clock: I am writing this e-mail, £20 of fuel down the drain. Anyway, I assume this is just a rubber fuel pipe and can be fixed cheaply?
