Petrol tank

Bought a hulk 22lt petrol tank , just filled it up and peril seeping out of the connector for outboard fuel line at the bottom where it's attached to the container . Anything I can do as suspect this is a fault. ?

Photo would help.

Is it leaking between tank itself and the elbow that's came with it screwed into tank... or is there a hose with clamp you've put on the outlet spigot... or is it a snap-on connector on the end of the hose leaking where it snaps on???

Hulks are pretty rubbish to be honest they always leak from there.

Scepter are the best tanks, them are OEM for Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki etc

I have 3 x 30L & 1x 25L Hulk tanks. They leak from there, they leak from the vent (when it's closed!) - If I can get it to stay closed.... I even had one where the gauge window popped out!

On my long list of things to do is replace them.... It's entertaining with premix when you get a spill!
