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...

Sounds like TP valve is leaking:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Leaking-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-TP-valve.html

Do not cap off TP valve.
Raise lever and gently lower back down to see if TP will turn off
Replace TP valve.

If problem persists, re-post question with specifics about your tank: such as electric, or gas, and if unit has a blower on top, and if gas control valve is electronic or has a dial.
