I don't usually wave my arms around in dramatic warnings, but this issue fits. I'd consider having the car towed or flatbedded to the service location. If it's a fuel leak under the hood, it can get massive very quickly, and there may not be enough time to get the car stopped and get out of it before the toxic smoke fills the cabin and makes the driver incapable of taking action to save himself.
