I kinda think the same thing happens to me. I brought it up before and the consensus was it was dripping out. I am parked on cement and I always shut the tank off and it never shows up anywhere. I started putting a vinyl exam glove over the gas cap and it stopped. The glove is usually inflated like a balloon, hope I'm not pressurizing something that can't take it.

I've got one tractor that has a shutoff that doesn't completely shut off, and the carburetor has a slow drip. Over the course of the winter the tank goes dry one drop at a time.

A lot of good comments by others, but I would guess it's evaporation, especially if it's gas that was bought in the winter, it vaporizes at a lower temperature. And be sure you have the tank valve shut off when not using it.

Put a piece of clear packing tape between the cap and the tank body on the far side of the cap, small piece is good. Kidnapping gasoline is popular. Jim

first thing is to make sure your shut off valve is closed. if you have a small leak through the carb with breather hose attached you may not notice it. over a period of time it will evaporate. same thing if your gas cap isn't sealing correctly. I suspect its one or the other.
