I have a 2015 Commander dps 800 two seater and it has leaked gas in the area under the gas tank (can't see exactly where because of skid plates) it has leaked since I have had it after a complete fill up for a short time but lately is it has gotten worse. I assumed it was an overflow from overfilling but now I am not so sure. Can anyone help?

There is a a large o-ring on the top of the tank where the fuel pump assembly goes into the tank (where fuel line exits an the wires plug in). Sometimes that o-ring needs to be replaced. Make sure the lock ring that holds the assembly in is fully locked in, it helps compress the o-ring. I had to replace this o-ring in mine as it would seep some gas out when it sloshed around.

Also, I have read where someone had a small leak in the filler neck and had to have it brazed.

They were updated in 2014 with a backing plate welded on the tank in this spot.

My mav is a late 14 ( October) and it still cracked beside the mount . The BRP fix has improved the tank but they still fail .

Thank you, seems like there should be a safety recall (fire hazard) for the tanks to be replaced with a revised tank to resolve what sounds like a common problem.

People have to die for can am to do a recall. Their idea of a recall is correct it on the next yrs model and then deny that there had ever been one claim for said problem .

And took several yrs to actually do a recall. Then the recall parts started causing fires.

My very low hour 1000XT, started leaking all of a sudden too. The locking ring on the top of the tank, had backed itself off just enough to start leaking. Still dont trust it.

Well, I took my Commander to the can am dealer for repair and sure enough the fuel neck connection at the tank had a defective weld and has been leaking for a long time. Thanks to all that replied to my post!!
