Re: Gas Tank Vent Issues
Actually the leak developed where the rubber hose, joins with the steel line between it and the filter.. I have one of the cheap clamps, and not an actual hose clamp.. Anyway, I took off the cheap clamp, and pulled the hose off, and that's when the gas really started flowing from the tank, back up the return line.. I now have a good hose clamp on, and no more leak..
As for the build up of pressure, I have a vented gas cap, but still build up a lot of pressure in the tank.. When I remove the filler cap, I have to remove it slowly to let the pressure release..
Any more thoughts?
EDIT: Didn't see the next post before I replied.. I don't think my tank is set up like that, but I will have another look tommorow.. Thanks for the breakdown..
