Found a pin hole in my tank once,up above, v near the weld with the 3 tubes coming out, pressurized the tank (carefully!) with air, then brush on soap bubbles, and watch for bubbles. Had it repaired, BUT still gas odor plagueing me. Have to live with it. I tried everything in the book!! Nothing worked! Spent 2 yrs off and on chasing it. Forget it.Friends... how do we eliminate the smell of gas in our spiders? When I drive a little aggressive, I can smell gas immidiately. Any suggestions, other than "do not drive aggressively. - By the way it doesn't matter if I am on a full tank or not.
LOL....Right, along with vinyl shower curtains, and all vinyl products, grilled steak/chicken, well done toast, well cooked bacon, fatty foods, etc etc.I would get it fixed on health grounds. I think petro fumes are carcinogenic...even though they smell nice.
Dave, you are one big lucky guy.....seems like you nailed the problem first time around.My Spider smelled of fuel when I first had it. My problem was the filler hose clamps had come loose. You could see small amount of gas weeping out between the hose and the fill neck. I retightened and all is well.
LOL!! Thanks for the laugh, bud.....Really, This is just funny as he**. Flame war....LOL!Don't start a flame war around leaking gas tanks! I empathize with your trouble. Take a coffee break or an entire weekend and forget about it for a while. When you return reenergized, the solution will reveal itself.
Stiff upper lip. Nothings ever as bad as it seems. Silver lining, and all that.
Good luck with it!
