  • Gas tank venting?

    I just pulled the seats out of my '89 Ranger and notice the vent hoses on each side of the gas tank appear too long and are kinked in the middle. Filling the boat with fuel on both sides has always been painfully slow-could this be the reason? Has anyone ever seen this before and is there any reason that I shouldn't shorten the hose and remove the kink?

    You will definitely want to remove the kinks. This will certainly help with the issue of it taking so long to fill your tanks, but more importantly, it will allow the fuel cell to vent fuel vapors. If the lines are kinked, the vapors become trapped in the fuel cell, creating a proverbial powder keg.

      Thanks for the advice! I am going to fix this before putting it back on the water again.
