That is strange. The strange thing is that it only did it one time. Clearly if there is a fuel leak it will not correct itself. Once a fuel line starts leaking, I have not seen one stop as they are pressurized lines and once it breaks loose, it does not stop leaking.
The only thing that makes sense would be something was overfilled but that would be back by the tank and not under the floorboard.
Is there any chance that someone is playing a prank on you? Kids? Best friend that would think pouring fuel on the floor is funny? Clearly that is a long shot, but this is strange that it would only happen one time and with a leak that large that the engine started with no issues.
Did you touch it and confirm it was fuel by smelling it? Also, did you just find the leak, or did you see it dripping? Meaning did you see it when you pulled out of the garage while you were in the vehicle or did you see if before you got in?
The only reason I ask is that fuel evaporates pretty quickly so if it were there when you walked out but it was not dripping when you walked out then that would not add up either.
Just let me know more details about what happened when you find this. Was it first thing in the morning? Did you just drive the vehicle and come back out to find it?
As much detail that you can offer would be great. Thanks
