I bought an st150 two weeks ago slight exhaust rattle the a small knock.
Got out after 20 mile drive today in clouds of petrol vapour. Exhaust seems to have melted a hole in the fuel tank spilling several litres onto warm exhaust.
I have now calmed down. Big panic at first.
Anyone seen this before?
Where do I get a new tank
Should there be heat shield between exhaust and tank.
How did it not ignite.

While your out get yourself to the shops and buy yourself a lottery ticket while your lucks in because that could of been so much worse than it was.

Holy that's definitely not something you want to happen.
The heat shields come loose around the mounting points, so maybe someone took it off to stop it rattling prior to sale rather than fixing it properly. Did you buy privately?
As above you'll be able to get one from a breakers, just a case of finding one nearby.
It does appear to be the same tank as a generic mk6, however the fuel pump unit which is inside the tank is possibly specific to the ST (I'm not sure)
Here's one: https://www.ebay.co....tm/392148542397
