I have drips of gas coming from the right side of the tank. After I park, it will drip a dinner plate sized puddle from 2 separate areas of the tank where it clamshells at the corner where, for lack of abetter term, it"dogears". There is no gas puddling at the sending unit although I had that issuesseveral years ago. The tank is full, but after 5 minutes or so, it quits. I'm going to get a photo or two and post it. Might this be some of those "stress fractures" in the tank I see in the forums?

Most likely or could be rotten vent hoses on the top of the tank. I know owners that have had this issue for at least a decade and avoid the problem by leaving the gas cap slightly loose and never putting in more than 3/4 of a tank of fuel.
