    I noticed a drip from the gas overflow after changing the oil in my 08 fxdc. There is less than 1/2 tank of gas. I checked the oil level cold & hot. I know that the drip has nothing to do with the oil change. Any suggestions?

    condensation, thats probably the answer, if it was just 1 or 2 small drips

    I agree that it isn't a problem as it is an Overflow tube,that could hold a small amount of gas in the tube and drip out at any time..(gas or condensation)

    Now if it was running out the problem would be a way too full a gas tank.

    I have filled my tank right up to the top and on a warm day parked in the sun Heat expansion left a big amount of gas on the pavement at the station, lucky it was cement and not asphalt...
