    I have a FC95 Stihl Edger. It developed a fuel leak over the winter. I always run "ethanol free" 93 octane gas. This winter I even drained all gas and filled it up with Stihl Premix gas. I have replaced all fuel lines primer bulb, fuel cap, and tank fitting for fuel lines, I even put a carb kit in it. I filled it up with fuel last week and left it over the weekend until today hanging in my shop, with the motor up. It is leaking again, but not sure where it is coming from. Any ideas on what or where I could check?

    Take the a/f cover off and remoce a/f. You should see a small brass fitting
    with a hose that goes to the tank vent. If the vent malfuntions, it will allow fuel to escape up the hose and into the a/f hsg. Just something to check.

    You got to narrow it down to whether it is coming out of the carb or from somewhere else.
