    Does your oil tank leak...??

    I notice when I filled my oil injection tank about 2/3rds that it seems to have a slick coming from the oil cap running down. It was tight but noticed it doe not have a oring ..or washer ...or no rubber gromet. The tank was clean and dry but after I went for a good ride if you rub your hand over it is was covered. Is this common??

    I wonder if this is why there is always a oil slick in seadoo's. Which is gonna drive me nuts if so since im a clean freak.

    Any fix 's ... The tank is like new condition as the ski is low hour 2000 xp.

    Thanks

    I just looked for where I stored my tank, too much junk, but later I'll find and see if there a washer, etc.

    I have a 1999 GTX Limited and a 2001 GTX I have Named the 99 Exxon Valdez, and the 01 British Petroleum. Both boats leak oil like a M#$%^R F^&(ER. I have yet to cure the damn leaks, I'm converting to premix because I'm wasting so much fukin $50 a gallon oil. Even if I only put enough to stop the Low Oil alarm I still get a slick in the bottom of the boat.

    I've owned every brand of PWC and Seadoo has BY FAR the worst POS Freaking oil tanks. I think only a retard would design a SEAMED hard plastic piece of shit oil tank. My oil tanks suck! suck!! suck!!!!!

    My GTX's have a hard plastic 2 piece oil tank and a rubber grommet for the feed line and the top vent. These tanks are of piss poor design and not much effort would be required to split the tanks at the seam.

    If there is an aftermarket 1 piece tank available for my ski PLEASE chime in. If not I'm converting to premix this off season.
