Again I am fighting fuel leaks and am getting quite paranoid over them. Todays patient is my 75 Bay, all standard with 1800 and twin carbies, but with an electric fuel pump over the factory fit. A couple of months ago I had fuel lines changed after a big fuel leak….all were done except for the small one from the tank to the pump. All has been good since then. This morning we were out of town with the car and I find a fuel smell when I go out to the car, to find the drivers side carby is leaking fuel into the engine bay and out the bottom. The car was on a slight hill and I remember reading of some form of issue that might have been something about having the tank higher than the carbies, or something….can lead to leaks. Tank would have been close to full (maybe 5 litres out of it), and the hill was only slight. I've not had this before, I've had this car over 3 yrs without this issue, my Kombi ute (type 1 engine) parks on a slight rise all the time and does not have this problem, neither have our beetles. I moved the car off the hill and the leaking stopped. Tried to dry the engine and air it out for around 20 mins, had to leave and all was OK for the trip back. It isn't leaking now it is on the flat at home. Can someone please enlighten me on this one, along the lines of: - is this a known issue - what causes it - is it a quick thing (i.e. known leaking spot) or does it seep out of something - is there an easy fix, or is it a case of not parking on hills (not easy?) Any and all info appreciated, thanks!
