leaky fuel tank

Hi Guys

Does anyone know of any common problems with EA falcons and fuel tanks leaking?? I filled up mine today and it leaked quite heavily. I filled it to only the first click as last time i filled it I put about 4 litres in after the click and it did the same thing . Any one have any ideas???

Re: leaky fuel tank

Where is it leaking from? the top of the tank? does it only leak when the tank is full? or does it leak when at around 3/4 or less?

Re: leaky fuel tank

Sounds like the tank is broken where the filler neck meets the tank = new tank.

Re: leaky fuel tank

Or it could be like mine and the plastic nut that holds the fuel pump/fuel level sender in place isn't put on correctly
