So I was out on the lake today enjoying the beautiful weather in Wisconsin and noticed when my bilge pump came on and the water was milky in color and smelled like gas. I started investigating as much as i could on the water and couldnt find anything. I got home, hooked up the hose to the motor and fired it up and noticed there is gas leaking at the bottom of the fuel line hose in the picture shown below. Im hoping this is just the fuel line swap and I will be good to go, any one else have this happen or any suggestions to the fix?

I'd change the line... and use better clamps than zip-ties. I personally like the automotive OEM style spring clamps. (you just squeeze them to release the tension)

Yeah im going to change all 3 lines just to be safe, I never noticed before that those were all zip tied, must have been from the previous owner. I bought some automotive metal clamps that you screw down, hopefully that takes care of my leaky gas problem.
