Question for you; How full was the tank at the time it began leaking? Had you just filled it up?. Could be many different things that caused it to leak, but if you intend on keeping this car for awhile, and believe in being safe, I'm sure you could replace all lines + reseal sending unit and fillerneck/tube all for less than $100 in parts. It would be wise to restore the evaporative emissions (charcoal canister) sytem as well. I'm sure you could find the canister at a boneyard, and replacement filters are still available for them thru most parts stores. Just my 2 cents, but why wait for a further fire hazard to develop? Either way, be safe and ENJOY that older Chevelle.
