LEAF BLOWER GAS TANK LEAK


Get a hot glue gun and seal the plastic tank. I know it worked for over a year for me and still holding when I moved and sold it. I no longer needed it as I was moving into an apartment.

I have a Craftsman Leaf Blower (made by McCullough) and the fuel tank is leaking - need a new tank. Model #316-794990, Part #MC 9228-334506. Thank you!


Before you spring for a new tank, check that the leak is not coming from around the fuel lines. If the fuel lines are not soft and plyable then they can not seal with the tank and may be the cause of the leak. They are replaceable and if that is the case you can get fixed up for a few dollars in parts.

Gas is leaking and I don't see any gas lines causing this. could be the gas tank - can this be replaced?


Could be the tank,and yes you can replace it.But first,remove the plastic shell and look for the fuel lines they are on the inside.Look behind the carb,and make sure that the gas cap is not where it is leaking.If the tank is cracked you will need to order one from the manufacturer.



Thank you for using Fix Ya.

How do you fix the plastic gas line? It doesn't stay in the gas tank. When I prime the bulb the gas squirts out and when the echo blower is in use, gas ends up leaking on my leg.


The holes in these gas tank are made to fit available fuel lines tightly enough to prevent the problems you are having. If yours is leaking either someone put on too small a fuel line or made the hole larger so it would be easier to put the fuel line in the tank. The only fix is to get the next size larger fuel line or replace the tank. You can try to seal the line with RTV or silicone but he gas will degrade it and it will leak again plus you'll have a harder time the next time the line has to be replaced.

I have a Homelite "Vac Attack" leaf blower model


The fuel line is replaceable by itself, you don't need a new tank. Just make sure you get the same size line or it will leak where it goes into the tank. Any local small engine repair shop should have the line. There are two lines that go into the tank, the pickup line has the filter on it. It not only filters the gas but keeps the end of the line down in the fuel.

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.

Fuel Leak


Recommend replacing the fuel lines. They only last a couple of years before they get brittle. The fuel line if very inexpensive and can be found just about anywhere.
