Post subject: question about my fuel pump

i believe my pump is on the driver side and the return is on the passanger side? im sure someone will correct me if im wrong.
just filled up the (non) racecar and noticed this puddle on top on the drivers side, recently my obc has told me. that im getting 6 (yes, six) mpg.
...anyone seen, or heard of these issues? maybe advice aswell as to where the leak is?

Well it looks like its just leaking out of the hoses. Tighten the clamp? What car do you have?

Here's an article on Pelican Parts. Doesn't look to bad if you have to wind up doing the complete replacement. The o ring or the hoses/clamps may just be it unless the top piece is cracked.

3. Observe leak
