Default Carburetor Bowl Gasket Leak

I am finishing up my 5th annual. I installed the after market fuel lines and new coolant hoses. I used the rubber gaskets on one carburetor bowl. When I pressurized the fuel system with the electric fuel pump I had fuel seeping around the bowl. Fortunately I had a couple of ROTAX gaskets on hand and fixed it by replacing it. I am posting for two reasons:

1. The reusable rubber bowl gaskets may not seal well.

2. The leakage in the drip pans (car gas) looked like oil. If you ever think you see oil on your drip pans be sure to check that it is not in fact gas!
