    Most likely the valve thingy on the side of the tank, just above the filler entry.

    Ok .. replaced the 90 elbow today and yup.. still leaking . The elbow did have a pinch hole through it where the clamp does up so im happy i changed it . Im sure its leaking from this valve thingy pictured .
    I filled up and all was good untill it leaked again . I raced home .. took wheel off and heard a hissing/ pftt type noise think it is the side valve ? It was really wet with fuel . Everything around it look clean

    Take the insides out ? Or put another fitting piece there ?

    does your other 306 have the same fitting?

    From memory the daughter's late Xsi only leaked when 'the tank was full/overfilled, I think I stuck some type of bung in the hole that the fuel was coming out of. It was 2 or 3 years ago and it had no leaks after. (Sorry can't remember which hole I bunged off).

    peter .. are these the 2 lines you made into one ? The 2 going to the valve ? So then it would be fully bypassed ?
