I just changed the tank in my wagon, jack it up an get under it, you'll see the back of the tank rusted and damp stains on the tank from a porous tank.
"00 to '03 tanks known to rust out from my research on this board.
Filler tubes can rust also per my research, mines still OK.
I didn't see mine weeping fuel until I jacked it up and got under it. Wasn't at the drip stage but you sure could smell it.
