heli's dont use gasoline, or petrol as it's known.

they use Kerosene.

so "gas" is incorrect. just saying.

Fuel tank leaking, find fuel tank parts to fix it.

it's part of the gameplay aspect of vehicles, ground or otherwise. When you use them they use fuel, in order to keep using them you have to find a jerry can, fill it with gas, and then take it back to your vehicle and refuel it. I think it takes a helicopter 30 jerry cans to fill the tank completely.

There is no option to repair a fuel tank on the chopper.

Well I can confirm that they are right. You actually need to repair the whole chopper (including glass) for it to stop leaking fuel.

Thank you for this. We parked ours away and it was still leaking... all but two pieces of glass need to be repaired :(

You need to repair EVERY single part of the heli, this means glass too.
If you don't believe, than you will never fix the leak, have fun.
We are flying with our heli over the map and have fun with no leak, it stopped after fixing every single part.

You´ll need to repair the heli

5 Scrap Metal
1 Main Rotary Parts
6 Windscreen Glass
1 Engine Parts

To completely top an empty fuel tank you need about 80 Jerry cans

Remember to repair the UH-1H completely first otherwise your fuel will leak out

The chopper we found originally had hull green, but something happened as after a server restart every part was orange. As hull can not be fixed and it eats 20 litres of fuel in less than 10 seconds, it's of no bloody use. Can't even be destroyed, the hull will stay orange. We spent all the ammo for the machine guns but they might spawn again, someone can use it to kill a few zombies.

We just got the chopper repaired completely, everything's green and we cannot repair any more parts (we have everything and tried it once or twice). It is still leaking. I'm not sure what else we can repair.

It's time to rise up, man up, get back up. Never been and won't be broken. Dust off and then come back for more. You've got to reach down, dig deep and break ground. Show them all you won't be beaten. Brush it off and then come back for more.

Thank you so much. We had the issue last night, had no idea how to fix it, it was a HUGE pain in the ass.
