leaking gas tanks

I''ve been there.

Is it also possible that you have a fuel line leak? If you can inspect the fuel line and assure yourself that it''s ok then the leak must be in the tank.

I would siphon the fuel down to what you think would be about half tank and observe if the leak persists. If it does, you must have a leak below the half-way mark.

If there is no leak and you add the fuel back into the tank a quart at a time and watch for leaks you might discover a leak above the half tank line. If no leaks show up, the problem must have been over fill.
