Questions and Answers – Comanche Fuel Tank Bladder R&RWritten by Steve Ells
Q: Hi Steve,
My 1960 Piper Comanche 250 has safely and comfortably carried my wife, my daughter and me to some of our most memorable adventures for the past 20 years. We have also been able to attend to my wife’s mother much better because our Comanche reduced the required travel time.
After all this, I arrived at my hangar last Thursday to find a strong smell of gasoline and soon discovered a steady drip of Avgas from the inboard section of the right wing.
Why do I have a leak? I’ve never had one before.
