It may be that the small sections of hose that attach the vent line that runs through the cabin between the tanks have rotted and cracked. There is a hose shown in the parts manual back near the fuel strainer as well. The parts manual shows the hose as p/n S1495-6 and 3 inches long. I had to change these in my C150 and the parts are not expensive but it was a pain to install them. Very tight fit in very close quarters.

I also have a 1971 172 and I will probably be changing these at annual time as they looked a little ragged on our pre-purchase inspection.

Figure 168 on page 466 in the C 172 Parts Catalog 1963-1974 for our make and model I believe. It is for mine. I have met the guy that put these on line. He is a friend of my hanger neighbor and has a C 172 with just about every mod you can put on it.

I have same problem. After doing some spins with an instructor this summer I got a fuel stain in my new headliner. cry

The couplings look to be old and I see blue staining there. The worm clamps look to be in terrible shape too. Hopefully it's just this and not the whole line has corroded thru so the headliner won't have to come down.
