    Just do not fill up until you are going to use the boat. Otherwise don't fill it completely full if you are going to store it.

    On Diesel they say to only fill 90% full. I don't think gasoline expands as much.
    So does this mean if you fill 90% full, and wait a few hours, you'll have a full tank??
    How does this work out in a mpg equation??

    Or is this like that damn airplane on a treadmill thread??

    Maybe you could put another vent in some where else and make that one blank .

    Re: Need help with Fuel Leak

    Make sure the vent line comes out of the top (highest point) of the tank, not the side. Air is supposed to be in that line, not fuel. If theres not already a loop in the line, (to keep water from coming in through the vent) might not hurt to replace it and put one in. It'll give it a little more room to expand before coming out.
