I had the same problem. I am on my third tank. The tanks leak right in the seam. The original tank started leaking after about 3 years and was out of warranty. I think I had to pay around $27 for a new one. That one only lasted a year and it was leaking. So I called them up and got the same story about the quality of gas that is out there now. I asked her ďif itís a gas tank why does gas cause it to leak, what am I supposed to put in it?Ē She said that they would send me one no charge as a good faith measure and recommended using Seafoam.
I drained the tank this spring before storing it. I didnít realize that it should be stored with the treated fuel in it. Iím going to fill it up tonight when I get home, sure hope it doesnít leak.
I think that this is a faulty tank. My trimmer and leaf blowers have plastic fuel tanks on them and I have never had any problems with them. I donít get it
