Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.
There are two screws, one in either side of the tank. One by the oil dipstick which you can get to easily, the other one you will need to remove the air filter cover in order to get access to, then look under the edge of the fuel tank and you should see the second. Once these two screws are removed you can lift up on the tank and it should slide ride up and off. I am including a diagram of the engine and tank which might help you.
