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.

    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?
