talk about fuel panic...


filled the landy up and noticed petrol leaking out!

turned out to be the cork gasket at the top of the tank where the pipe goes
in - smeared some red hermetite type stuff on it and refitted, it might be
OK now. Will need to keep an eye on it.

Mine does that too (cept it spills diesel not petrol). I dont think
that the pumps at the garage cut off until the fuel gets to somewhere
in the filler pipe - by which time its past the level of the top of
the tank.

When i fill the landy all the way up I always make sure that i do it
when i'm a good distance from home so that the drive home gets the
level of the fuel down slightly!

I used to lift the seat up on my series when i filled it up, so i
could see when the fuel started to leak from the sender gasket and
stop filling.

That reminds me.. Percy still has a full tank and he's not going anywhere
until he gets a re-chassis... His last trip out was to the Petrol station
near on 12 months ago :0(
