hi there, hope this helps, the fuel tank sender and pump is placed in top of fuel tank, the supply out pipe to engine is under high pressure when engine is running! this pipe splits at the very top, allowing fuel to escape!! took a while to find as leak was very small to start with!!you will need to drop tank and check very carefully, part is expensive[around£200], so ebay could be cheap source from breaker!! fault is caused by vibration of pipe connected to the outlet of pump!!
good luck,don't smoke when fixing!!
