MERCEDES Panel Van 208 Fuel Tank Leak

I run a 1994/95 208 Diesel Panel Van and there is a slight fuel leak which seems to come from the top of the tank where there is a small Rubber connecting Hose. Does anyone know if these hoses become pourous and allow fuel to squeeze out hence the leak? When the vehicle is stationery for a while the leak ceases. Any ideas please before I have to try and get a new fuel tank, which for the year of the vehicle is difficult as the Sprinters took over in 1995 in the UK.

Ken-
This is not the correct part of the forum for your question. To get the most help, you should probably repost it in the Diesel part of the forum. Or send a PM (personal message) to VSTECH, who is the moderator of the diesel forum, and he can probably move your post. Good luck.

Could you post here or send me via PM the VIN of your car?

Hi , The leak seems to come from area 53,56,59 on the diagram where it connects to the top of the tank. After the vehicle has stood stationery for a short while the leak stops.,Thanks Ken
