The contact stated she there was a crack in gas tank. If the contact filled the tank 3/4 full the tank leaked. The mechanic said it was a crack in the top of the tank. She noticed this a while back. She always kept tank full. But when gas prices went up excessively she could not afford to fill it up. When gas prices went down, the contact filled it up again, and that was when the tank started to leak. Had not hit anything that would have caused a crack.
