Hi there,

The burst hose is a sign of aging coolant hoses, I would consider replacing all the hoses and fitting a new thermostat and pressure cap, flushing the coolant as well, as for the fuel leak, you will have to identify the leak, possibly a loose connection that will require re tightening, but with out more info on this I can't comment any further.
