E 34 I Smell Fuel

Hi guys

today as I was driving with my window open I could smell fuel .

I arrived home and began searching .

I saw fuel leaking somewhere when you stand in front of the engine on the right side where the fuel gets to the engine .

I decide to move the engine plastic cover .
I started up the engine again to have a better view and the leak was gone ????

I decided to have a 10 minute drive but afterwards I did not see the leak anymore although before I actually saw it dripping !!!

Moreover I do not smell fuel anymore .

Anyone had this before ?
