I finally reached my limit of tolerance of the gas fumes in the trunk of Dexter the token bavaria. I had previously inspected the fuel lines in the trunk and found all of them to be OK. Also, the vent lines all appear (and smell) intact. So yesterday, I drained and removed the tank from the trunk where it was originally installed 36 years ago. Needless to say, it didn’t give up easily. Nevertheless, it’s out, and it’s going to town for an inspection. If it comes back “viable,” then I’ll seal it and have it painted before reinstalling. Keep your fingers crossed!
