yea well today was the first day that i had got the tank filled up all the way since i got it. when the hose clicked and stop, at that split second i hear a sudden splashing sound as if u flip over a bucket of water. i look under the car and theres about 2 gallons of gas that just emptied itself under my car!!!! its been leaking ever since drip by drip. at first the dude at the station was like yea its ok they sometimes have an overflow when it gets too much it'll empty a little out. then it just kept leaking. im thinkin there was a rust spot on the side of the tank and it just gave. cuz everytime i took a turn i left a trail of gas behind me. and to make it all better it was the day i got it inspected. they drove it right through to test the brakes and when the lady finally stopped some gas spilled out in the inspection station floor...haha. but any way she failed me for bad brakes which apparently she didnt press cuz i didnt even see the light go on until she pulled the e brake... she pressed the wrong pedal!!!!! can u believe that...i can almost guarantee she pressed the clutch...wat an idiot!!! she said i had no brake at all. then she fails me for my exhaust!...hahaha...oh faithful corksport. and they also failed me for irratic idiling which it did do for a little bit....then failed me because the "idle changed when i turned the steering wheel"...what an idiot!!she was all fat and short..and we had the seat all the way back how could she be able to reach the pedal anyway!!!!

aaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!

thanx needed to vent and was a little off topic after a while

The plug is on the bottom, if it were leaking, it would leak at all times, he said it was leaking just around corners....



Wait, I got it! Just don't turn

the inspection is to be able to drive it legally. i told my paretns we should just buy a sticker but they gave me the whole "its illegal" speech.

if you find a hole in the tank, use that gas tank/radiator repair stuff that comes in a tube, like putty. i got a big hole in my integras tank, and that stuff worked great.
