Hi there! Iíve been browsing your forums for a while and you seem like a great group. Excited for my first post!
I bought my 2010 V7 in late summer 2014. After my first long ride, I parked it in my garage that has very little ventilation, and went to bed. The next day, I found it had a puddle of gas under the bike. I found drips coming out of a drain hose under the bike and it seemed to have leaked out of the filler cap as well. I made sure the fuel lines were clear and replaced one.
Next long ride, I came back and found another gas puddle. I popped the gas cap and felt a puff of pressurized air.
Next stop was at the shop. They found a crack in the tank (no idea why MG decided on plastic). I went into 12 weeks of waiting for a new tank from MG. Thankfully they warranted the repair. The reason I was given is that the high ethanol content of gas in California would cause expansion in the tank. That caused the crack.
Just got the bike back and took it on a long ride. Parked it, left it for an hour or so, then popped the gas cap. Again, the large puff of gassy air.
I haven't seen gas on my floor yet, but I donít want to crack another tank. I donít want more puddles of gas on my floor. Is what Iím experiencing normal? Should I fix something? HELP! ???
