Can you determine if it's the line or the tank leaking. If the line, maybe it only needs a clamp or the line is rotton & replacing the line &clamps will fix you up. If the tank is leaking, In the intrest if safety, Replace the tank & also the lines & clamps,,,,Roger

There is a rubber grommet where the fitting goes into the tank. This needs to be replaced.
