Answer 1
You could have a line break or a bad connection to a faulty fuel filter. Driving the vechicle would be dangerous till this is taken care of. Need to locate the leak first. It could be here http://www.ionforums.net/images/files/howto-fuel_filter/Installed.jpg -
Answer 2
Fuel pressure lines and return lines may follow the right side going up to the fuel module that is on top of the tank. If it leaks only when the engine is running I suspect that one of the lines could be damaged. Suggest you have a professional shop check it asap for safety sake. -
