There are several things that might indicate - it might be that your pump gasket has shifted or cracked on the top of the tank.. Or (and I don't know if SAAB was steel tank for that year) - the top of your tank has rusted and weeps a bit when topped off.. Could also be your vent line and or filler tube have come away or that your return line is starting to leak.. Basically - you need to drop the tank and check it over as that kind of problem can get really out of hand in the right circumstances.. -- Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Mr Ray Charles - In The Heat of the Night all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in no sign up required - all the Time
