Hey guys i just discovered that my fuel tank is leaking a bit, its leaking from what it looks like the top of the tank, i think it has something to do with the fuel vapor condensor i put back on.. i think its that valve at the top of the tank because the tank is full..

Take it to a Radiator/Tank company, in the past i had tanks leak near the fill tube. They were cracked or rusted. One person i know had one rust out UNder a strap. Another was a pin hole from a rock.
Hard to say for sure, best to get it looked at, unless you can take it out yourself.

Could be your valve, that i can not say for sure.

hey guys after taking a closer look im pretty sure that vapor valve is broken or something.. but the stang was jacked up in the front and the tank was full, that is why it was leaking.. i lowered it back down and its not leakin now.. full tank + tipped back = leaking...

you might have done the same thing I did... I put in a new pump and even though the pump door was secured tightly, the little rubber gasket on the door didnt seal properly and everytime I fill up to full it leaks. I can back up on a hill and it will stop aslong as gas is away from the unsealed door. I dont know maybe thats not your problem but its something to check.
