Hose disconnected from the gas filter caused gasoline to leak from the vehicle. The consumer managed to reconnect the hose to the filter which temporarily remedied the problem. At a repair shop, a new filter was installed when the mechanic installed the fuel filter. Consumer noticed the connection from the rubber hose to the filter was only a plastic snap and not a solid connection like the other end of the filter that goes to the engine. Consumer felt the plastic snap could snap again and cause serious or deadly injuries.
