I visited the truck last night fully expecting to turn off the fuel valve
and putter with the line going into the pump. I slid under the cab with a
work light, WD40 and channel lock pliers but couldn't find a valve
anywhere! The line from the tank stood all alone. There wasn't anything
happenin under that cab except for the one fuel line. Is it possible that
some tanks came that way. Could the tank be a replacement? I also slid the
seat forward and peeked at the tank from inside the cab to make sure I
didn't mis-interpret the location. Nothing jumped out at me there either.
Could it be possible that the gas is slowly expanding in the tank, thereby
increasing the pressure in the line which causes the eventual slow
'weeping' leak going into the pump?
