Standard (non-synchro)?

We had ours overhauled. Big mistake. A new tank is cheaper and works.

RE: Rusty feultank
My fuel tank sprang a pinhole leak. I first blocked the leak with soap then covered the soap with Pratleys Steel putty. It lasted for years but during those years it sprang three more leaks which I fixed the same way. The tank was rusting on the inside and every now and again it would rust right through. So I agree with WRM, unless you are happy to be fixing leaks on a regular basis buy a new tank. I did eventually.

Wish i could see inside whats going on. The sender unit sits on the side. Will remove it and try have a look with flashlight. Atleast it's not leaking yet. Might just be dirty. Filter had a layer of muddy/dirty feul at the bottom
