Even cheaper than my first Subi, 83 wagon for 200 bucks!!! It runs great, interiors good, (better then the hatchs') the dash isnt even cracked. I have only found one thing wrong... The gas fill tube leaks when you fill it up. Any suggestions!? Only had it three days, many things to work out though. The motor is strong, it has 166k.

If i remember correctly, there is a section of rubber hose attached to the filler tube just before it enters the tank. I suspect thats probably the prob.

I dug in this weekend, finding that the whole gas fill tube was rusted clear through almost all the way around. just made kind of a temp fix, spliced it with another tube. Git-Er-Done. Everything checks good but the gas gauge? Any ideas there. Thanx.
