leaky petcock

Hi. I just bought a Batavus and there's gas dripping from the petcock. What can I do to fix this problem? I suspect it may be a bad o-ring but I thought that gasoline can disentegrate the rubber in o-rings so I'm really not sure.

I have the same prob with my honda. My best advice would be to purchase another one, that's what I'll have to do eventually.

At napa you can get a fuel shut off valve designed for a lawn mower, but the thread mathes up perfectly. It works great, just no reserve tank. they are about 5 or 6 bucks
