Mr Lucky; Seal under tank most likely is available as a seperate part, however you must search parts using engine model number and type. For example honda gx270 engine uses part # 16955-ze1-000 as replaceable part under tank. There are several engine options for your generator. I believe that you are a very lucky individual for having experienced fuel leakage on welder and not cause fire. I would certainly check to see of there is a retrofit tank for your engine that does not use a rubber adapter. Most Honda engines use a tank with thread on adapter. I would also check all fuel lines for swelling/cracking and replace with highest quality available for your safety. I worked at at rental store while attending college and witnessed the shop mechanic change out parts from new equipment when he determined weakness in design. Good luck with your welding projects.

Engine lite on 2002 4.0 new gas cap

V A new gas cap dose not always solve the problem with the EVAP system .
And understand the concept of the system is unsound to begin with .
What its supposed to do it store fuel vapor in a sealed system in a charcoal filled canister at the rear near the fuel tank .It has a vent valve from the tank to the canister most likely problem .The vent valve has a filter air needs to get in so the tank can vent into the canister but vapor can't get out .Its an electrically controlled solenoid that opens in conjunction with the canister purge solenoid located on the intake manifold .
When the engine rpms reach a high enough speed the purge valve is supposed to open and burn the fuel.
With cheap materials from China the fuel system rusts out the tank the lines all of the seals in a few years add road salt you are left with nothing except a government mandate drafted by fools .
The last time I filled up my tank hundreds of times more fuel vapor went in to the upper atmosphere then my vehicle with the evap not working in a year .

The ful line actualy disloved and the problem is inside the carburtator there is a valve that lets fuel into the fuel bowl and also shuts it off when its full the floats control it so its always opening and closeing that is stuck closed from the melted fuel line you need to clean the entire carburator out the neddle valve may have a rubber tip at the seal point so take care not to damage it ware it makes the seal but its not hard to do anyone with some common sence and a little mechanical abilitly can do them selves

Does my ford motorhome have a gas shutoff switch 1991 ford sprinter v-8 7.5 liter

Most pickup based motorhomes have 2 fuel tanks, you may have a tank selector valve that is electric or vacuum operated. Check underneath and follow the fuel lines from the tank to the front of the engine, somewhere in between you may find that the fuel hose goes to a valve that is used to switch between the 2 tanks ie: main fuel tank and auxillary fuel tank.

Code 455 with low fuel level indicator light flashing comes on in my mercedes e 420

you have a leak in the fuel evaporative emission system. The fuel light flashes when the gas tank and system is not sealed, and the purge control cant **** vacuum or hold vacuum in the tank. Usually its the gas cap not sealing the tank correctly, the "activated charcoal canister shut off valve" wont completely close the system, or the "purge control valve" under the hood isnt opening/pulsing correctly enough for the engine manifold vacuum to create the vacuum in the gas tank
