Question about Homelite 'Yard Broom' Leaf Blower
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...

I WAS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM AND FOUND IT TO BE A HAIRLINE CRACK IN THE TANK ABOUT THE MIDDLE OF THE BACK SIDE.
