182S fuel tank leaks

182S fuel tank leaks

<HTML>We have discovered two late model 182's lately with the fuel tanks leaking (these are "wet wing" tanks). The seepage/leakage comes from the seams of the tanks, and both aircraft, it has occurred on the right wing tanks. Is anyone else finding this? Is Cessna addressing this? Both A/C were out of warranty.</HTML>

Re: 182S fuel tank leaks

<HTML>I know two friends with 182S's here in the Seattle area.  I forwarded the original posting to both and advise if I hear anything from them...

Re: 182S fuel tank leaks

<HTML>Neil, I talked to the Cessna Service Center rep. (Lee) nearest me about this (Stetson Aviation, Kennedy, Tx).   He in turn consulted with the Cessna Field Rep. for Tx about it.  The Cessna folks do not have any information about any tendency for late-model 182's to develop fuel leaks.  They do have one other airframe that developed a leak in a fuel LINE on the LEFT system however.  It was judged an anomaly.  If your 182 is still within warranty (or even if recently out of warranty) Cessna would like to hear from you.  Lee would be very happy to assist you at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
