gas boiling in 2011 ranger 800 xp
I have about 17 hours on the unit. Have noticed that when running in sand for a while, engine under load, I started smelling gas. Today I took my pyrometer and when i shut it down after a few miles in the sand. The side of the gas tank that faces the engine was 160 degrees and vapors were poring out of the vent tube. I could here a sizzling sound. I assume that was gas boiling on that side of tank.
The engine is not overheating, fan cycles on and off as normal, 194 - 206 degrees. I took temp readings on the belt housing transmission and so forth, all was ok.
Anyone seen this before? what was the answer?
