I don't have an exact cause for the fuel leak. I only know the general area where the fire started which leads me to the filter/accumulator.

I don't know if the hose failes or if a connection went bad. Therefore, I can't say that braided steel is the answer or simply periodic inspection of the lines. CIS operates at high pressures so this is an area for concern. Also, if you have an early SC, you should always turn the key off if the engine stops. Otherwise, the fuel pump continues to run dumping raw gas on your exhaust system.

I had a fire extinguisher with me. The 2.5 Halatron was not sufficient to prevent the reignition that occured due to the running fuel pump.
