Re: Leak coming from Fuel tank

[QUOTE=conor123;1416458]... but i fill it up to the top and frove about 20 mins then to home and put her into the pit and checked. it was still coming out pretty fast like 5 drips a minute. but slowed down to about 2 a min before i left. /QUOTE]

So how far you gone in 20 mins - perhaps 10 miles max? so used maybe used 1/10 gallon at the most. You probably wouldn't have used enough of the fuel sitting in the filler neck to get it below the point where it stops leaking.

Surprised me too, but its been quoted on several threads in the past.
