WeedEater Featherlite String Trimmer fuel leak.

I recently replaced both fuel lines on this WeedEater because the old ones broke off. I was able to install the fuel lines and it runs great. It leaks a lot of gas around the larger fuel line. I replaced it twice and it still leaks around the hole where the line runs into the tank. What am I doing wrong?

    I waited several weeks between the time that I installed the hose and when I used it. Any other suggestions?

You may want to check the fuel line and the return lines; I had a similat problem on my 9 year old Weedeater featherlite and found that the fule line had rotted thru and the part of it along with the fileter was at the bottom of the fuel tank. Although your trimmer sounds like new, but this may be worht a try.
