Alright here is the deal. I have APS fuel system on my 02 WRX. The lines have a SMALL drip( when I say small I mean seeping)

In terms of a fuel leak any is unacceptable. It ran for about 5K miles last year and this year when I took it out of storage it has a leak at both distribution blocks. Is there anyone out there that has any experience with these?

Should I be putting a teflon tape or something to help "seal" the areas? Nothing is suggested in the system itself. Just wondering and yes I tried tightening these things to the point of BREAKING the lines...rest assured they are tight.

I appologize if this is in the wrong forum just trying to find an approiate place where people would see this thread

...ya might try some of the liquid thread sealer...make sure you clean and dry the fittings and allow the sealer to dry before applying fuel pressure to them.....and you are right, ANY fuel leak is a no-fly item.

Yeah after reading some more online in general fuel systems I came across some loctite that is gasoline safe.

I am going to try that and see how she works.
