Question about Garden

1 Answer

Gas leakage Gas is leaking on both sides of gas tank. Can't isolate where exactly. There is a small what appears to be screw opening that gas is coming from just under the blade, very bottom. Can't tell if there used to be a bolt there or plug of some kind or not. When I put my finger over this opening, and tilt it the other way, gas is coming out somewhere else on the other side. Doesn't leak if held upright, just if tilted appx 45 degrees left or right. Don't know if this is safe to operate in this condition, just discovered this recently. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, David

David, you need to go to a junk yard, and buy a newer gas tank. A temporary fix, would be to use a ton of JB weld on the leaky seams.

Leaking gas out of gas tank looks like it is missing a plug on the side of tank

I don't know your particular saw, but all fuel tanks are vented. Possibly the vent line or vent fitting has become dislodged and lost.

Why is there fuel leaking from a small nipple on the side of our 110cc chinese quad

Engine probably flooded and carb float probably stuck open. Try putting the gas line on reserve and adding an fuel filter to put in btw the gas tank nd carb

Inside the cabin strong gas smell after fill up for approx 50 miles. 2003 Honda Odyssey 85k miles.

do you have the same fuel economy as before or does you gas last less miles than before. if you can smell gas whether the car is running or NOT that means you have a leak in your fuel system if it was not a leak, you would not smell it when not running . first thing is check under vehicle after overnight parking and see if there is fuel on the ground if there is , this will give you a starting point where to look for gas leak. Plugged, dirty or poorly connected fuel injector; Leaking fuel filter or fuel filter connections; Punctured or damaged fuel tank; Loose or poorly connected fuel pump; Gas in gas can in trunk.

How do i access the battery

It appears the battery is under the left side of the gas tank.
First get a 3 mm hex key and remove all the side panel screws and remove the screws that hold the cover around the gas filler cap, and remove the two plastic side panels. After the screws are out the side panels the panels slide forward and will come out. There are two hex screws (size ?) that have to be removed to release the fuel tank. One is under the tank and is accessed from the rear with about a 1 foot extension for the hex bit. The other is on the front rt side and is quite obvious. There is enough fuel hose on the tank that you can simply prop-up the front of the tank with a piece or wood or anything convenient and get access to the battery. I put battery tender leads on my 696. Hardest part is removing all the small screws that hold the side panels and cover for the fuel tank.

Gas leaking from tank

This sounds like you have a leak at the fuel pump and sender unit, either in the unit mount or in a fuel line. Check under your back seat for an access panel if you have one then remove it and look at the pump and sender mount to see what is leaking, you may have to start the engine to get it to leak as it may only leak under pressure, hope this helps, let me know

Fuel problem

Hi. you may have two issues here. you may want to check the fuel pump o ring for lose or worn fit. i would also do a line check from the tank all the way to the engine. make sure your lines are ok. if all checks out, this may be isolated within the tank hull. replace the fuel tank if a leak is present.

Front gas tank leaked when I filled the tank

the top of the tank has an opening where the gas guage sending unit is installed. The gasket can give out and it can leak when the tank is completely full, but won't necessarily show signs of leakage when the tank is partially full.
Requires dropping the tank and changing the gasket... hope this helps.

Gas smell outside of car. unable to see any leaks, car runs fine

Hows your gas milage or do you have any check engine lights come on?Usually if theres no leakage signs its an indication of the evap system leaking.That is recycling of the gas fumes.Its a vacuum system that is now manditory on cars.Thats usually rhe answer when theres no leaking happening.After driving awile open your gas cap,see if you get a vacuum sound when you open it.
