Hi Joe
Where is it leaking?
I had a pinhole leak at the weld where the drain is, took it to a pro and he repaired it and did a beautiful job.
$40 I think

Hello Joseph

I have 20 year old 601 UL and my fuel tank developed a pinhole leak near the fuel drain as well.  I had it repaired last year and a new leak developed in another spot this month on some welding where the bottom of the aluminum tank folded, where it rests on a "ledge" so I had it removed once again and had it repaired by someone else for $80.  I also reinforced the outside of the bottom of the tank with some thin padding that I glued to the bottom edge and spray covered the whole tank with rubber like "Flex -Seal".  Hopefully that should do it.  I really didn't want to buy a new tank from Zenair/Zenith for $600 CDN.  If this doesn't work I guess I will have to buy a new tank.  Marvin
