Gas Smell

4 posts in this topic

I have a question, I hope someone can answer. I have a Lund 1660 pro V with a Yamaha Pro 60 2 stroke. The boat has an on-board gas tank also. I just got done winterizing the motor, and filling with gas and stabil, but now my garage stinks of gas. Could it be overfilled? I just don't know where the gas smell is coming from. Any help on what to look for or do would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Folke

I had the same thing. I have a crestliner, and any time I put fresh gas in it I could smell gas. It is more than likely it is comming from the vent tube. Fresh gas eveporates alot of fumes. Chances are that it will slow down quite a bit shortly. If you have a floor tank this has to be what it is.

Check out the vent tube (likely a round puck looking object on the side of your boat) - is it leaking gas?

If you filled it when it was cold to the top and it warmed up it will burp some gas since the volume changed.
