Denise, I'm hoping that is not the case ... you never know. The reason I think that it is a connection somewhere around th engine is that the petrol is in the tray under the engine as well as the bilge... so I think that the problem is higher than the tank. You didn't have to open up (cut open) any deck to get your tank out?
