Re: [T3] bad gas tank leak 71 square.


You can drain the tank by just pulling off a hose
underneath it - make sure you have a clamp handy, and
plenty of ventilation :)

Now that the others mentioned it, I recall my fasty
also had a fuel spill issue because of the filler tube
- I fixed it using Fiberglass and so far, so good. I
heard fiberglass is supposed to be fuel-proof, but
never got any real confirmation on that. The hole was
at the top so I wasn't too concerned. Does anyone else
know?

Cheers,
-Nico
