Gasoline line leak!

Turned on the engine and strong gas smell. After turning it off smell lingered all day. After numerous calls and google searches, nothing!
2009 Thor Windsport 36' class A on a Ford chassis.
Had it towed to Ford, it's now 8 days later living in the Ford parking lot. The part is of course (sarcastic humour) no longer made. So we are still here waiting while Ford (local shop) tries to have one manufactuered.

I suggest you ask another Ford dealer..... I had no issues finding a gas line when mine started leaking---- they are high pressure lines, so an off the wall item won't work. The one we had was a 2000 and I got a line in about 2010. in addition to having them look under the F-53 parts catalog, try the F-550.

I had a Saturn Vue with rusted out fuel line. I replaced the line with high pressure fuel injection hose and clamps.

if you do this, use ONLY approve fuel injection hose and clamps, They are specifically designed to handle the higher pressures associated with fuel injection systems.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Still sitting waiting for part to be made at a local shop, but....it's been 9 days@Conway Ford Conway, SC. They have a bad attitude and if I need updates it's like I'm bothering them.

Couldn't you remove the old line and take it to a hydraulic shop and have them fab you a new s/s one using the existing fittings?
