To chime in on CIS fuel leaks, I had a fuel line fail two years ago. Starting the car for the first time after replacing the fuel filter, the engine didn't fire after being turned over for perhaps 5 seconds. I was about to turn the key again when I heard a funny dripping sound. Thank goodness I investigated. The little rupture in the fuel line just ahead of the filter had sprayed a fine mist of gas that covered the entire engine compartment. Had there been a hot exhaust manifold I'm not sure that the fire extinguisher that always sits next to the car when I do anything with fuel would have been much good.

A high pressure / high volume fuel system like that needs respect.
