check the fuel tubing to see if there are any holes in them..

If not, then maybe it is leaking form the fuel tank

To check the tank..seal the two fuel nipples (with fuel tubing, one leading to the other..etc)..and place the tank in a bucket of water....if it is leaking...then there should be bubbles comming out

try those first

good luck`
