 Properly maintained vehicle yet it developed a fuel leak for no apparent known reason except perhaps a flaw in engineering. it is leaking from the o-ring gasket between the fuel tank and the fuel pump flange due to the plastic tank distorting over time from normal use. piaggio/aprilia offer no fix nor do they acknowledge a problem with the design. *tr
