the crankcase vents into the air intake box. pull the air cleaner and see if there is a little oil in the housing. 'if' it's blowby check the oil the level should be closer to the bottom line in the site glass.

Can't say it's the same but, the flange self joining the top half to the bottom half of the tank leaked on mine. Couldnt see it until you removed the speedo and then not unless I had more than half a tank. Before you assume a fuel leak, does the garage smell like gas when left overnight? Doesn't take too much gas to smell the place up.
