Leaking gas or fluids that smells like gas

(1996 Buick LeSabre)
in Benson, NC on November 30, 2010
I noticed monday my car leaking in front of right rear wheel i bent down to smell it it smelled like gas and it was a heavy gas smell. I also had my heater on since it was cold which heater isn't working right either.Anyway it leaked for about 3 or 4 hrs on and off only seemed to do it while car was off and set for a while.Stopped by garage( i had cut heater off for a while )the car stopped leaking not a drop it seems like if i started heater it would do it.

I don't know about the heater but if you have a fuel leak back there I think you have a leaky fuel line. That's a fire hazard so get it fixed ASAP. Then ask the machanic about the heater. I don't think the two problems are related.
