I brought a new Hustler mini Z home yesterday and it leaked gas. Turned out they gave me the wrong mower anyways (long story) so they brought be another one. Also new - it leaked gas also. Seemed to both be leaking from the same place. Right hand-side tank, upper bolt, where it bolts to the mower.
What is up with that... Any of you Hustler owners had this problem... Dealers?

They over tightened the screws from the factory and it cracked in that area, I replaced a few on Dixie Choppers for the same reason. They will warranty the new tank and install.

... That was what I guessed - overtightening. The dealer is taking care of it. I hope he will come and replace the tank at my house. Seems easy enough. We will see. I did a search and saw that others had the same problem.
Thanks for the reply - good tagline.
