Thread: "vaccum" in the gas tank

    "vaccum" in the gas tank

    Hi all:

    I tried to remove the right gas tank cap and it felt unusually hard.
    However, as I removed the cap, I hear a rush of air getting in the
    tank. There was no visible obstructions on the gas vent.
    Something is preventing the inside tank presure to equalize with the
    outside pressure.

    Any thoughts appreciated

    fuel vent plugged

    I think your fuel vent is plugged! I have had muddobbers get in mine and plug them up . I now have made two covers for the vent lines (Took a 1/4 inch piece of nylon tubing and attached to a 7/16 bolt and taped a long red nylon streamer, so i did not forget to remove before flight.
