    I don't see PA-12 listed in the models affected portion of the SB. Maybe because Piper no longer owns the PA-12 type certificate.

    Thing is, at least in my experience from 12 years ago, fuel on the inside will release the finish coat from the under-layer, making it wrinkle and detach.

    Edit: Could be that more recent...

    Unless the full tank's vent is blocked, how could the air pressure from the empty tank exceed the air + fuel pressure (gravity head) from the full tank?
