I'd say that, looking at this thread, you have a loose coupling in your fuel line somewhere. This may have been caused by presumably disconnecting and reconnecting the lines when the fuel was drained or it may be that the petrol has eroded a gasket / seal. I'd suggest following the advice in the penultimate post of the link I've posted, namely... ...
