I am on my second A4 powered boat, never had an inkling of a fuel leak in 7 years of usage in some of the nastiest conditions. As stated above, however, the first thing I would do is toss the life-ring, then come about. I wouldn't hesitate to fire up the engine. Five minutes can literally be a lifetime for someone that falls overboard.
