1993 Jeep Wrangler S.
Alright.... I have developed a leak on the top of my tank. It only seems to leak when I'm driving somewhere. I had it idling with the tank down today and after about 5 minutes, there was no leak or gas smell. I dropped the tank today and...... No cracked hoses or other easily visible sources.
Here is what I saw:
1 - The leak seemed to be coming from the tilt-over valves on the top of the tank. This would explain the short spurt of gas that happened the other day when I filled it up.
2 - The return line had become mashed a bit against the body.
Mods that may have contributed to the leak:
1 - 15-20 gallon mod. The gas sloshing against the tilt-over valves may have worn them the rest of the way out. She is 20 this year.
2 - I put a brass junction in the out line to compensate for the lack of a 3/8-5/16 hose when I originally pulled her out of storage. I would like to note that there was no cracking or other deformation on the out line.
Anyone out there got ideas?
I would like to know if anyone else has had this problem. Or something similar. Thanks for your time.
