    I just purchased a 52/20 FasTrak about 60 days ago. I love the mower but both gas tanks are leaking out the caps. Filled less than 2/3 full and still have same problem. I can just park it outside and the gas will leak out the caps. Anyone else having this problem? I thought the gas cap leaking was an old problem that had been resolved.

    I purchased my 52/20 about the same time and am having the same problem.

    I had the same problem, go to your dealer and advise them of the problem, they will give you some replacements. I have had no problems since I changed mine out..

    Did they replace with a different type of cap or did they just give you new ones of the same cap?

    It was a different type of cap than what was on there, but it works fine, no leaks since I replaced them..

    If you have gas coming out your caps, call your dealer immediately and get new caps.

    Went to dealer to get new gas caps. Dealer took two off a new mower that was sitting on the showroom floor? They were the exact same cap. Is the fix a different style cap or just keep trying the same ones till you find some that don't leak?

    I have a 52/24 and my gas caps leak bad. I have advised my dealer about it 3 weeks ago and still have no answer on getting the new ones.

    The replacement caps look a bit different, we had a few different ones, and a couple looked alike.
    If these still leak, make sure your dealer gets new ones from his distributor.
