I started up my 1998 Toyota 4runner today for the first time in 2 weeks. I went to go brush the snow off of my back windshield and I noticed smoke coming out from the rear drivers side wheel well. I looked under the car from behind to check if the smoke was just blowing sideways from the exhaust but it wasn't. So I turned the car off and took a closer look at the wheel well and seen that the only place that smoke could be coming from was the fuel tank, and I proceeded to start the car back up. Once I started the engine I noticed that the smoke was coming from the direction of the fuel tank so I immediately turned the engine off. I looked under the car to see if there was a gas leak or a tear in one of the gas lines but there wasn't. What could cause this to happen? And is it a bad idea to drive my car until I find time and money to have it looked at?
