    Default Fuel leak

    Only one day after I boast that I have had no problems with my 307 I get fuel leaking from somewhere near the top of my fuel tank when I fill up. Fairly gushed out to begin with but soon slowed and now seems to have stopped.

    Any ideas?

    Just a guess, the breather return that comes back into the filler?

    Could be, but I find it strange that I haven't seen a drop before. I always the tank right up. Has anyone with a HDI had this happen?

    If you're looking for 307 HDI owners, this probably isn't the best place Haven't really come across this issue on the 307 list though.

    There are a handful of C5s here though, however I don't think I've read any of them reporting this issue.

    might not be related but I had an issue a year ago with my 306 - occasionally fuel would leak from the top of the tank somewhere but generally this only happened after it had been sitting turned off for a few hours.

    I was in Townsville at the time and initally I thought it was a temp thing but it happened early in the mornings sometimes when it was relatively cool. Only other change was that I was filling with Caltex Vortex up there (no 98RON that far north) when I usually use Optimax or Ultimate.

    Anyway I had mechanics check it out and they couldn't find a problem, moved back to Sydney and back to 98RON it hasn't happened again.

    Dosn't sound like a common problem. I'm getting it checked out on friday so will post what they find then.

    Cheers

    Problem identified! The fuel breather return isn't broken; its simply not there! Nice one cruiserman . No one knows why it has never leaked before. Apparently I get a new tank when one is ordered in.
