Closer Look at Honda Fuel Tank
The Honda fuel tank is located in the undercarriage of the vehicle, under the trunk area. Because of the location, most models of the Honda fuel tank are treated for corrosion resistance, which protects them from the elements, keeping it dependably performing its function in the vehicle for many long miles. However, the Honda fuel tank, in its position, is vulnerable to moisture and road salt splashed up from the road, as well as rocks and road debris. The daily assault of the elements and road hazards take their toll over time, wearing on the corrosion resistant coating, causing dents and scratches that are helped along by the moisture and road salt, allowing corrosion to begin on the surface of the Honda fuel tank. As time passes, these areas of corrosion can develop into small holes in the surface of the Honda fuel tank, allowing fuel to seep through, and moisture to seep into the tank. Another common source of leakage in the Honda fuel tank is wear at the point where the metal mounting straps contact the surface of the tank, as the road vibration and bumps cause the straps to rub against it. This too leaves areas that can become vulnerable to corrosion, and eventually cause leaks that can become a hazard for fire or explosion if the fuel comes in contact with hot exhaust system parts as it drips.
