Gas leak

My neighbor told me I have a gas leak on the weekend. Today, coming out of the MACS I saw evedence of fuel on the skid plate. Some one please tell me that the tanks on these things isn't another common place for rust to accumulate and put my mind at ease untill I get home. By the way its an 86 CJ7.

Thanks

Just replaced the tank in my '75. Rusted out near the rear lower left corner. The muffler shop found it when his shop flamed up while welding my exhaust! LOL

First mod on both of my Jeeps has been a plastic tank. Both of the metal ones showed signs of rust. At least with plastic you know there is no rust fouling you fuel supply.

Yup platic, or polyethelyne, gas taks are the way to go. I'm on my third and final tank thanks to them. I've had it for 3 years now and everything is still good. www.4wd.com sells them.
