I own the 145BT.

Mine will leak when one of the two tubes (one black and one yellow in the picture) that come out of the gas tank pull out. I find this is usually when someone hits them when priming the carburetor, just before starting it. I just push either the black or yellow tube back into the black rubber gasket on top of the fuel tank. The gasket is pretty tight so it sometimes takes a bit of effort.

More than once I had quite a bit of gas on my clothes by not making sure they were pushed in completely, before putting it on my back to start blowing.

The tubes should probably be a bit longer -or may have shrank a bit over time.

You suggest it leaks 'right down you lower back'...I interpret this as when you are using it....you suddenly feel gas..are wet, etc.

Perhaps it is not actually a leak, but a spill out of the gas-cap. This sounds like something that we all do now and again when we trim.

Maybe you are tilting it sideways to trim a sidewalk, tree, etc...and the gas 'leaks' through the hole in the gas cap.

Hope this 'fix-ya'...remember to rate...

Fuel in airfilter and it acts like it is going to die every couple of minutes then idles back up and never actually dies


it sounds like there is a leak in the carburetor. The fuel hoses can get cracked and leak, and the gaskets in the carburetor can get old, even after a single season. I would double check the hoses and gaskets, and if they are worn I would take it for service.

Lynda,
Many times the return hose is routed thru the hole you described with no extra fittings or grommets. I suspect the hose cracked at that point, some of it fell inside the tank, and the rest is what you can see on the outside, so you may need to replace the hose with a longer one. The diameter needs to be larger than the hole as the 'press-in' fit seals the tank from leaking.

Just bought a used leaf blower, homelite, gas leaks out of the gas tank, where the gas tube fits into it.


"top of the gas tank where the gas tube fits into the tank"

I assume you're describing the gas tank cap. if so, the o-ring is missing from the gas tank cap. You can find those at hardware stores.

Husqvarna 145bt my gas line has come loose from the gas tank?


Hello etatum1634:

This File should Help.
The Following is a Basic Instruction File I made for Replacing the Fuel Lines and the Filter on Chain Saws and Trimmers. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>The Fuel Line is Pushed and Pulled (I Use Long Needle Nose Pliers) Through the Small Hole Until the Hose is Out the Fill Hole about a 1/2".
>>You can Also Use a Coat Hanger with a Small J at the End to Hook the Filter in the Tank and Pull the Filter and Hose (if Detached from the Carburetor) Out the Tank Fill Hole Enough to Replace the Filter.
>>Then Attach the Filter and Pull the Hose Back Until the Filter Lays at the Bottom of the Tank Just Below the Fill Hole (or so it is in the Bottom of the Tank and will Rest in the Fuel Mix when Turned at Common Angles the Unit May be Turned to During Operation.
>>**Hint: Use Plenty of Spray Lubrication at the Small Hole as you are Feeding in the Hose. It Slides Easier.**
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully
