Wet Patch on Driveway.

759 4
I have noticed a very small wet patch on my driveway on and off. Today I went under my truck and the front of the fuel tank is wet with diesel. It is dripping very slowly. I just filled it up yesterday and I would like to know if there is something on the front of the tank that would be allowing fuel to escape. I am going to take it to the dealer:)banging:) tommorow to have it checked but I thought I would ask first to see if there is a simple solution. Thanks guys.

Did you possibly overfill it, or did it splash out when the pump kicked off?

Mine has done that several times, and it runs down the inside of the box fender to the ground... makes a mess.

But if its coming from the front of the tank.. hmm.. could be a problem.. i think these tanks are plastic...

I did not fill it. It was full service. It is possible that it ws over filled. I am going to get it checked to be sure. Just the front of the tank is wet. It does not appear to be an over fill.:banghead:

If it has been happening on and off for a while i doubt it has been overfilled every time, but still a possibility. There are vents in the top of the tanks and if one of the seals around the vents has gone bad or was never really seated properly it could leak at fill up also, just a thought. Anyway, hope everyting gets taken care of for ya. :thumbsup:
