I have a 1988 GL 1500 that has started leaking gas into the tray that sits around the gas cap. Does anyone know what that could be?

Check the hoses at the petcock to make sure they are not cracked and leaking.Alsoinspect thevacuum petcock. It is directly above the gas cap. Parts are readily available and it is an easy repair if it is leaking.
