    Morning everyone

    I am trying to find out if anyone has had a similar problem. We have two R66s and both have had fuel bladders replaced. One of our ships is on its third bladder. Apparently the vapor barrier broke down to the point that the fuel would seep through the walls of the bladder. So we had a constant fuel leak when it sat for an extended period. The other issue is that the fuel bladder sits above the battery compartment. So during an annual inspection the battery compartment was wet with fuel from the bladder leak. So you can see how this can be a very dangerous issue. If anyone has had a similar issue please let me know. I would like to hear about your experience.

    Thanks
