Re: Honda 2HP fuel tank

Interesting stuff in the Honda Service Manual for the 2 HP.   According to the "Fuel Tank Inspection Procedure," you should "Check the outer fuel tank surface.  Replace the tank if a red layer or an off-white layer appears at the surface."  The picture points to that area that flexes with heat and cool.  This is all visible by taking the cover off.  I read this as, the tank is intended to flex, but too many flexes can be bad.  Mine shows no red or off-white.  Whew!!
