UPDATE: Yeap, the rubber line between the fuel rail and the fuel filter exploded and dumped 3/4 tank of premium Shell gasoline on the ground. Got it fixed and I'm rollin once again. I'm told that I'm extremely fortunate in that I didn't have a fire with that much fuel on the ground. BTW; I was also reminded that all rubber fuel lines need to be replaced around 7-8 years of ownership. Mine lasted 13 years before this issue. Just my two and a half cents worth...
