A leak is a way (usually an opening) for fluid to escape a container or fluid-containing system, such as a petrol tank or oil filter, through which the contents of the container can escape or outside matter can enter the container. Leaks are usually unintended and therefore undesired. The word leak usually refers to a gradual loss; a sudden loss is usually called a spill.
