Do as polman suggests - if the fuel is boiling you gotta find a way to cool the fuel tank - try removing the side covers (they trap heat) - maybe install an accessory fan just to move air out from under the bodywork

Most important - non-ethanol fuel - it has a higher boiling point than ethanol blended fuels
