Siva283 When something isn't right with the fuel this can happen and did. Snuffed a life far to soon and took 2 kids mother away.

The texture and its appearance doesnt look like fuel. Its grimey.

And i am fairly certain his engine would be seized by now...a sending unit failure can be catastrophic in no time

Doubtful... but a hairline crack on the dipstick tube somewhere on the pipe should be inspected for
Or if your an idoit like me and screw it in tight but not tight enough the sending unit will leak slowly. Definitly looks like oil. I dont know why I was thinking those pics were in the back. Fuel is still nothing to mess around with. It defdinitly hits a spot. I would be worried about the fuel smell first then the oil

Siva283 I dont know what I was thinking origionally when I looked at those pics. You should check your oil pressure sender and your dipstick when I got oil there thats where it came from.

You also need to find that fuel smell. My fiancee was was killed when her jeep caught on fire. Dont risk it it isnt worth.

Chrisnvegas Sure doesn't look like gas to me. Looks oily. What is it, gas or oil? Kinda makes a difference!

Azhunter1 Mine was running like crap after I got it and I ended up dropping the tank cleaning it out and blowing about a 100psi down the line. The crap that came out was awesome. I ended up putting a third filter on right where the fuel line comes off the frame and over to the fuel pump. I used a clear filter so I could monitor the crap. Oh my jeep is a 88 4.2 with a carb.

I think you have your answer then. Now you need to run the lines to see where the failure is. That can turn into a dangerous situation quickly.

I'll check choice 2 and 3 because I always ride half tank lol

natewill18 As of recent I've been having extreme gas pressure release when I take off my gas cap to pump gas ,and now there's leaking after a drive right underneath my charcoal canister. And there's liquid everywhere as you can see in the pic. Any thoughts if both issues are related? Any solutions for a fix ?

P. S. 3rd photo is from underneath the charcoal canister. You can see the black fluid droplets on the starter solenoid next to the red transmission bellhousing
