I​ have seen some reports of that happening, but it is the exception and not the rule. Are you sure that a clamp on the line just isn't loose? I can tell you that this gas today with Ethanol in it is extremely hard on hoses! We see lots of leaking issues on generator lines. Not much way to change that in most cases. Did that answer your question? If you nee more on this please get back to me as all follows up and exchanges between us are included in our one time fee. No time limit.
