There's a Hole in my Fuel Tank

I had a scheduled meeting at SM MOA this morning so I left home a bit late with the Altis. I decided to fill-up gas at the usual Shell Katipunan just outside our village gate. While waiting for my credit card charge slip, the gas attendant noticed that my gas tank was dripping gasoline. They peeked under the chassis and concluded that the tank had a hole somewhere on top. So it only leaks if the tank is full.

I called the driver to come over and convoy me to Toyota Shaw to have the tank replaced. It was kinda scary to think that anytime someone nearby was smoking and carelessly threw the cigarette, that my car could explode! Had to cancel/reschedule my meeting and have the drive bring me to work instead.
