Re: Leak coming from Fuel tank

Have you an overflow pipe in the filler neck? On my Trafic, although petrol, if I fill the tank to very full I have fuel dripping on the floor at the pump stand and until I have driven a few miles then it stops. If I fill up the tank to full but not so it rises up the filler neck I have no problem. It does sound like you are overfilling your tank.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
