    Even if you fill the tank upto brim you cannot get petrol drops outside the tank if the rubber seal is fixed properly. Moreover petrol is meant to evaporate as soon as it is open in air. How do you find the droplets ?

    Dude how does the petrol manage to get on to the outside of the tank!!!
    It'd be easier to understand if you put up a photo of the tank indicating where the petrol shows up...
