Question about Ryobi Garden
This problem can be from many things. I will give a few suggestions, inspect the bottom of the tank itself for any small punctures and where the fuel line exits the tank for proper sealing. Check all fuel lines for proper sealing and cracks where they connect and check for punctures or if the lines are brittle or discolored to a yellowish color, if so they should be replaced. Check the carburetor for loose screws on the carb itself or loose bolts attaching the carb to the intake manifold. Also the gaskets might have some leaks. You might have to overhaul the carburetor itself.
How do you store your grass trimmer, is it flat on the floor, stood up against a wall or hung up upside down like many people do? This would be easier to pinpoint where your leak is. Have the fuel lines been replaced? If so, it might not be the proper size, and where they enter the gas tank might leak fuel out slowly. From what you say by leaving the tank cap facing up, you store it horizontally. I think you might have a small puncture on the bottom of the tank or maybe from around where the fuel line enters the tank. Another thing that might be helpful is how much and how fast you lose fuel? Those are a few suggestions that might help. If you wish to ask more questions I will by happy to answer them. I hope this is helpful in some small way. Regards and good luck. Denis.
