OK, I have to jump in on this one. I use a YS61ST2 in my Ergo 60. And while I have only used it for a year I have NEVER had it leak out the carb, and since I fly mostly at my house I have on numerous occasions left the pressure in the tank. I go out after a few days, and the pressure is still there, and no fuel has leaked into the carb. I have NEVER seen it happen on the bench or at the field. Like I said this is the first year I have used the YS, so I was not used to having to release the pressure, so it went pressurized many times, and like stated before I have NEVER had it leak into the carb. Maybe I am super lucky, or maybe the planets are aligned just right. The only thing I have had happen is a main fuel tank split at the seam, but that was because I was using the stock flimsy foam for the tank around the frame, I have since then switched to small rubber hose that I slit to fit over the frame.
This is not gospel, but it is what I have observed.
