Hello any help appreciated!
2005 cobalt Ls 2.2 coupe

Been smelling gas for about a month now got to work today and idled about 15 mins and the smell got worse it smelled like sombody splashed fresh gas on my nose inspected. For leaks and found a wet clamp with 2 steel lines and 2 plastic ones I'm doing 1860km per week roughly and home is 670km. Away so I need a little advise

Should I replace whole line for 350 for primary and 150 for purge/return line

Do I HAVE to remove the tank?
What has to be dropped to remove the tank?
I'm fine to work on it I've got 3 days just looking for tips or things to know or avoid

Can I use a hose clamp and barb and small section of rubber fuel line as a permanent fix?

I'm planning on buying somthing newer haven't thought of replacing the floor in it the primary layer let go but it seems to have another layer below, maybe a cruise or a cobalt SS 2010 or somthing

Thank you!

You may as well do it right and replace all the lines. Although, thinking about it, who knows how long that will last with all the cold and salty roads.
I'm not sure about whether to drop the tank or not.
Hopefully someone can chime in.

And if you get a cobalt Ss, get a 05-07 LSJ. They just have the better motor. Lsj>lnf
