Subaru Forester 2003.
Purchased one month ago ( used ), fuel tank replaced from the past owner one month ago..

Yesterday i've made a full refill of the tank and noted a strong smell of fuel in the cabin.
Removed the backseat and found a leakage..
Will post a photo asap.

How is possible? maybe the fuel tank has been overloaded?
See there.

I'd pull the side panels away on the filler neck side & make sure the clamps that attach the hose to the filler neck & the clamps that attach it to the tank are tight. It's a possibility that it leaked in while you were filling up & ran down the filler next & into your vehicle.

Thanks!
The problem is that i've seen that leakeage start from the two holes\pot that you can see in the photo ( exp. the right hole/pot )...

I've clean it and maked around 15 miles and it leak again from the same hole...But cannot understand what is it...what are the functions of this two holes?

Leakege occours only during driving.

Do you have gas dripping under that area, to the ground? Have you removed the tank access hatch to see if a hose could be leaking? Perhaps the previous owner was in the tank & didn't get all the hoses properly reconnected. :confused:
