The rubberized fuel tank was found to have failed in the collar band regions. The failure was by tensile tearing along the line joining the mounting holes. It appears most probable that improper tightening of the mounting brackets and/or nonconformities in the dimension of the rubberized fuel tank would have resulted in the tensile load in the mounting holes. No material abnormalities appear to be responsible for the failure.
