"I too have a 'bulge' on the side of the tank of my 2009 GRiSO. I was told due to fuel vapours leaking through the plastic and getting under the paint. From reading this topic, if I bring it to a dealer there is the possibility MG will replace my tank under warranty?"

M-T,
I was told no by my (now defunct dealer) even after 1 year. He said he tried before but probably didn't want to mess with Piaggio. I think after the warranty period, it would be impossible. I would have been OK of they would have sold me one for a reasonable price.

Be careful it doesn't spread to your trousers (being so close to the tank). I tried telling my wife it was ethanol from the petrol but I don't think she believed me Very Happy .....and although that's a well documented Italian problem, I don't think Piaggio will sort it out (on the other hand .....)

If anyone ever hears of someone fabricating a metal tank, I would be very interested.

I would then take my plastic one and ... [hmmmm, no; that might be a felony. Evil or Very Mad Wink ]
