When I am out riding and have used about a gallon I start smelling gas. I can see it bubbling up the vent tube. Has anyone else had anything like this? When it's full it doesnt so it.
Thanks for that infoyet smell of fuel is not. I see them on both my sporties but neither smells like fuel at any point, full or half. If no one on this board knows why yours might smell of fuel ask "OPT" (old polaris tech) on ATVCONNECTION-just call him out in your title post. :werd:
That makes sense. Thanks! Ill try some insulation on the tank and see if it helps.its the gas warmer than ambient temp....you have a engine in that area plus the warm air being exhausted from radiator.... the gas expands and vaporizes....how vapor lock happens...evidently Polaris does not have enough insulation on bottom of the fuel tank....you can buy some insulation adhesive sheets and add some...this is probally more prone to happen in areas that have warm temps to begin with....remember the old day when fuel fillers were behind the license plate on cars..and you filled up and when hot it would spew out when it got hot....now new cars have a over flow vent in the gas tube going into the tank....vapor recovery...
