gas tank problems

front and rear tanks leak on recently purchased f-150 1995. i'm not worried about the rear but i would like to be able to fill my front tank. is there a remedy for this problem other than replacing it. it only leakes when it is filled over 3/4 of a tank. how much trouble and money for a replacement tank/

Re: gas tank problems

It would be VERY unusual for both tanks to have leaks unless something damaged them. Have you checked closely to see where the leak is?

Re: gas tank problems

no i have not located the source. i do not use the rear tank b/c of previous owners warnings. today i topped off the front tank for the first time. it leaked until ir reached just above the 3/4 mark on my fuel gauge. if i could get both tanks for around $200 i would have my buddy install them or maybe just the front. maybe i could repair both but i dont know where to start. what products work, if any?

I sure would like to know where the leak is coming from. If you want to get some used ones, you can check here: Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

Re: gas tank problems

I never thought to look for new tanks and didn't know RockAuto sold them. Thanks for the input.
