When you replace the hoses, find the grade that is good for ethanol gasoline. Ethanol blend fuel are going to be around for a long time.

A sincere thanks goes out to all those that insisted I replace these tanks. I considered for a few minutes that I would focus on other projects. Replacing the lines and hoping that this would have resolved the "smell". I am glad that those few minutes faded and I had a suspicion that there was greater problems. Holes in the tanks = end of life for them. I am sure that it had to do with lack of air movement under the tanks and water entering the ER. (under the tanks) I will be having a higher strip added to the underside of the tanks to correct this issue moving forward. Now to make the wife happy, eliminate gas smell (check), new carpet (check).

No valves at the pan, no reaching under hot engines.

Sounds good but even metal pipes can fail, do you install a Murphy oil level alarm in the oil pan?
