In response to Re: Toilet still leaks
: : I replace the flapper, flush valve, flush valve washer, tank-to-bowl washer and bolts and washers holding the tank to the bowl. There's still a phantom flush. When I shut off the water feed, the tank water drops about 2 inches, but no more. Any ideas on what the problem may be and ways to fix it?

: It sounds like you may have a hole in/or a defective overflow tube or flapper or the refill tube is inserted too far into the overflow tube and it is siphoning down the that level.

Thanks e-plumber. Please elaborate on the refill-tube siphoning? I did have it just laying in the overflow tube. How would this cause the water to siphon off?
