Unless it is spraying out everywhere, its doubtful. Your pump will be able to produce enough pressure to overcome the tiny bit of fuel you are losing. Over the winter Mine cracked and was leaking, never had any problems with the car stalling though.

I own a 01 GT and I'm getting a fuel odor once in a while coming thru the vents. Can someone post a pic of where the FPR is located? Thanks.

Kinda hard to miss. It's at the front right corner of upper intake manifold, right next to the neck with the throttle body on it. It has a little black vacuum tube going to the top of it, it's attached to the end of the front fuel rail, and has a fuel return line attached to the bottom of it.
