1994 Samurai JL.

I use my Zuki mostly for a tow vehicle behind my RV but the same problem exists while it's just sitting in the yard.

Fuel is just disappearing! A full tank has disappeared since January.

I've sniffed in every hole, examined the tank and filler tube, the line running to the engine, the filter, etc. I've done this with the engine running and off.

Is there some weird thing about Samurais that might explain this?

If the vehicle has not been started since January, and a full tank of fuel "disappeared", it's either been stolen or the tank has a leak.

it does evaporate, but damn, not that much that fast.
I can leave a lawnmower sitting for a few months over winter and its still got 95% left. Someones stealing it, or the tanks leaking as Fordem says.

Thanks

Oh Wow! I never considered it might be being stolen. ;-)

Thanks for the smoke test suggestion.
