    Petrol leak!!!

    i dont know if this is the right forum so if not someone feel free to move this.

    It'll either need a new seal for the fuel pump/sender unit (lift rear seat, pop out the big plastic disc and look for leakage), or the tank has started to rust away. Check all the pipes you can find under there too.

    Last tank I had was almost made out of tin foil!! Finished up taking the tank out. I found a tiny pin hole, Fixed it with some epoxy resin from Halfords.
