Greetings from Arizona:
Filled fuel tank on my 74 t-top up to about an inch below the bottom of the filler neck-- turned sharp right into parking space, saw quite a bit of fuel leaking onto the ground from above the drivers side muffler-- but it stopped fairly quickly.
Was thinking it was simply fuel overflow from sloshing it around going into the parking space, but smelled fuel later after driving 30 miles and wondered if there was a seam that might be rusted at the top of the tank and leaking.
How can I tell if my tank is rusted out at the top ?? No particles in fuel filter. Where do they ususally fail ? Car was originally Oklahoma, Texas until last month.
Thanks-
