Diesel leak

Post by Jordan morgan » Tue May 04, 2021 6:56 pm

Anyone else had a problem with diesel leak on the 1.9 tdi? Iv jacked van up but cannot see any noticeable leaks, seals look fine and filler cap and pipe looks good, could it be coming from top of tank? Well anyway I cleaned up the area but a little drive to McDonald’s and it’s back filthy again, any help would be appreciated.

Is it ply lined? If it's leaking from the tank area, could be that too long screws were used to screw down the ply and pierced the tank. Somebody else had the same issue on here, if I remember correctly.

Is it mate yes, that’s exactly what I was thinking as there are 2 bolts in the centre on the floor for some reason🤔 the previous owner must of bolted them into the floor to strap something down, maybe I’ll take it to the garage for them to drop the tank for a better look
