Yeh, most likely rotted fuel lines...i have a Jeep like that (parts Jeep) and the lines are shot (stinks like gas, worse when runnign and under pressure).

Depending how far you want to go, Stainless Fuel Line kits are available through wwwquadratec.com or <a href="http://www.4wd.com" target="_blank">www.4wd.com</a> and are the best way to go. Replace them once, and you are done. Not too hard a job, just will take some time to remove the old ones, clean up or buy new clips and replace. As with any rusty project, you may "break" soething here or there and eed to take a couple trips to the hardware store, LOL <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

I Just got finished replacing all my fuel lines, let me give you a piece of advice, do one at a time! It will get confusing if you dont. If you line is only leaking in one place you can cut it out and replace it with rubber fuel hose, its very easy to do and will only cost a few bucks. If they are really bad, and you plan on keeping the jeep for a while, I would then go for the stainless lines from 4 wheel drive hardware.
Good luck
