Any suggestions? Does anyone know any shop that can actually find the problem? Does anyoneknow of a good boatyard that canpull/replace the tank?

Please help! Thanks.

Thanks for the reply.

Do you have a dye product that you recommend in that reguard?

If so, is it available locally? I see lots of petroleum dyes on-line but they all are for hydrolic and lubricating oils. I have yet to see one that stated that it can be used on fuels.

Thanks.

Oreilly auto parts ask for the high quality petrolium based dye. You will also need a black light if you are having a hard time tracing it. You can get a black light at spencers gifts for about $10. Use more dye than recomended to make it easier. Fuel is a petrolium based product and any dye for petrolium systems will work. I've been using this method for a few years and it has not let me down.
