Another (not in the manual) way to leak check the fuel tanks.

Edit: First picture too small, added a close up.

Yep, good idea. And that obviously checks the cap seal as well....

Another idea that came from someone in my local builders group was to use Helium. Reason being is that Helium molecules are small and they will pick up the tiniest of leaks.
