G'day peoples,
I've searched till I wanted to cry and cant find anything pertaining to this prob.

When filling-up and the tank is near full, it spews about 1/2 to 1 litre of fuel out all over the place!!:surprise:

Why is it so??????:hit:

cheers

The tank breather hoses are split. Best to get it fixed before the VN burns to the ground :(

Mine does retarded **** when I fill it up... my breathes have all been re-done, so I duno what the go is. I'll have to rip the tank down AGAIN and have another crack at it.

Spews it back out the filler neck so I reckon maybe the big over-fill hose is kinked and it air locks maybe :( i duno



and on this topic, anyone tell my why my allegedly 80L tanks on both my VNs only give me 68L to empty? fail!

You could have pinched the tube inbetween the tank and under the car - seen it many times.


Have you adjusted the tank size in the trip computer Samikins?

Thanks for the replies peoples.

I don't think I was very clear:emb:

When the fuel tank is almost full, fuel, very violently, spews/sprays back out the filler neck all over my hand, the pump, my leg, the ground, the side of the car. Sometimes it can be quite epic.
:spew:
^^^^ just like that :rofl2:

cheers
