Draganfly do an extension tap for the Leader and they also supply a neoprene 'cork' which is ethanol proof but a bit expensive and I've heard the corks are very tight so may need reducing down in size. Brian H. ps I've used corks in my taps for a number of years and not noticed any serious reduction in life due to ethanol fuel. The quality of the tap bore ie. damaged or rough ones seem to make the most difference.
