    Help with fuel cell leak.
    I have a MK3 roadster, an 8 yr. project. Noticed a fuel drip under the rear of the car last Saturday afternoon. Checked and found fuel "dripping" from the "weep" hole on the bottom, passenger side, at most rear-ward part of the Fuel Safe container. Monday morning cleaned the entire area, checked fuel fill plate, hose. & clamps, on the side of the container, as well as, all fittings on the top of the can. All areas dry. Re-tightened all bolts and hoped for a cureSome were not snug and all were tightened. Hoping a cure, now 2 days later, it remains the same drip. This is a carbed 347 with a mechanical pump. Since completion the car has been driven 450 miles in the past several months. This "drip/ leak" suddenly started last Saturday afternoon. Any suggestions of something I missed checking are greatly appreciated. I hate the thought of having to buy a new Fuel Safe cell. Would prefer so keep a safety cell. Thank you for any help.
