How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
Stored fuel containers shall be located to minimize exposure to excessive temperatures and physical damage. Containers shall not be stored near exits, stairways or areas normally used or intended for egress. Outlet valves of containers in storage or transport shall be closed.
There are basically two ways your car`s fuel tank could become damaged: from physical damage to the vehicle`s undercarriage, or by putting something in the tank that shouldn`t go! We probably don`t have to tell you that putting water, diesel or sugar in your gas tank is likely to cause problems.
Fuel Tanks provide a reliable, local source of fuel for stationary diesel or turbine engine driven equipment, including generator sets, pumps and mechanical drives.
Many commercial tanks can certainly be repaired and there are companies that specialize in such things, but for the purpose of this blog we will stick with residential tanks.
Tanks should not be closer than 25 feet from any building, per best practice recommendations followed by West Bend Mutual Insurance Company. Prevention of fuel spills and leaks is the most important management tactic in minimizing pollution liability. Barriers must be installed to protect the tank.
(a) The capacity of the tank shall not exceed 12,000 gal. (b) All piping connections to the tank shall be made above the normal maximum liquid level. (c) Means shall be provided to prevent the release of liquid from the tank by siphon flow. (f) Spacing between adjacent tanks shall not be less than 3 ft.
The good news is that YES YOU CAN, repair a polypropylene gas tank.
If you suffer a crash, or travel too quickly over a speed bump or sudden dip in the road, your fuel tank could become damaged. This could lead to a potentially dangerous fuel leak. Of course, a severe fuel leak would be noticeable by a puddle of gas on the ground under your car after sitting for some time.
On average, tanks can last around 25 years. That said, if tanks are close to “retirement age” and show signs of corrosion and rust, then it`s probably time to purchase new tanks.
The fuel system is made up of the fuel tank, pump, filter and injectors or carburetor, and is responsible for delivering fuel to the engine as needed.
In water distribution, the term break tank refers to a pressureless and closed water tank, with an air gap that ensures zero backflow into the system. Grundfos supplies pumps and booster sets for pressure-boosting in break tank systems for buildings and water supply.
Unfortunately a fuel tank cannot be repaired once damaged. Having your tank serviced regularly just as you would with your boiler is important so you can notice any signs early on to avoid any spillage/damage.
Repairing your existing fuel tank is the best solution for new OEM fuel tanks. A proper weld can last up to a few years and extend the life of your original fuel tank. However, the process of welding a diesel fuel tank can be extremely dangerous if not done in a controlled environment.

The resulting cured adhesive can be drilled, sanded, threaded or filed and it is resistant to fuels and most solvents after full cure.
Some fuel leaks happen because of a small hole in the fuel tank. If this happens, a mechanic can repair the hole without having to replace the entire tank. This is a pretty straightforward fix that is both safe and affordable.

I have a husqvarna 323L string trimmer. I stored it after running the tank & carb dry for about two years. I fueled it, then started it, & it ran for a minute then died like I turned the switch off. Since it would not restart, I found the fuel filter had broken off the hardened fuel line & it sucked gummy crap out of the tank & into the carb. Failing at cleaning the carb, I finally put a new carb on it & replaced the pump, hoses & filter. It has ran good till this year. I winterized it with stabilizer & left it with a full tank over the winter. The gas in the tank was gone when I got ready to use it this year. I filled the tank with premix, checked for leaks, then started it. It would run fine for about half a tank, start idling poorly (lean) then cutoff & refuse to restart till I refilled the tank. I finally found the tank had cracks & was letting pressure out of the tank & apparently this was causing the carb to lose it’s ability to siphon gas out of the tank. So I replaced the tank which came with new hoses & a filter, which I properly installed to the carb. It cranked right up, but when it runs a half tank, the carb quits sucking gas out of the tank. When I pump to prime the carb, it moves the fuel into the carb, but the pump never gets hard like it does when I prime the carb when the motor is cold. I have to keep refilling the tank, prime, & then it starts & runs until the tank gets about half empty. The new fuel filter is down in the gas tank properly, but It will not run after it shuts off until I refill the tank & prime. I’m baffled. New tank, new hoses, new filter, new carb, & I can find no leaks in the fuel system. It runs strong. The 323L is a two-stroke & it always cranks on the second pull from cold on a full tank. Any ideas?

I know this is a pretty old thread. But I have a 2004 Husqvarna 359 and it does the same thing. Has anyone found the cause of the problem yet. It seems to die from lack of fuel or too lean of a mixture only when the saw is hot. I have : removed the cylinder and found it to be scored very bad, i replaced the cylinder and piston, replaced the fuel filter, removed the carb and checked for debris, new spark plug, new air filter, changed fuel to a 32:1 just to see, all to no avail. I dont know how to test the ignition module, and I dont know if there is a way to test the cranck shaft seals. If any one can give me advise from here it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Brian in Spokane Wa.
