[DML] Re: Gas on top of tank ...

There's a hose type clamp that secures the bottom boot covering the 
section of pump in the tank that could be loose, unless the boot has 
a hole or leak in it.  I had this problem when I bought my car last 
year.  I lifted the pump/lower boot from the tank and tightened the 
clamp that sealed the boot around the pump, and it kept the pump dry 
after that.
