SM Lazer Xpress/Strike-lite---fuel leakage question.....

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

My Jiffy has served me well for over 20 years but it isn't as light as it used to be so I'm considering buying a Xpress or a Strike-lite. I'm interested in knowing if anyone has any trouble with gas leakage when laid down during traveling. I have an SUV and I'm worried about it leaking all-over. Thanks for your responses.

Had the strikelite on the ice for the first time yesterday. No gas leakage to mention. Boy does she purr. No fumes to mention either so I didn't come home smelling like oil/gas.

The metal pressure release valve on the lazer gas cap has a rubber o-ring that can crack or break off. Mine broke last year. I just tighten it all the way down and it doesn't leak during transport. I thought it would without the o-ring but seems to be fine.

something to chew on anyway...

If you are looking at a 2hp from Jiffy or Strike Master they use the same Tecumseh engine so the gas caps would be the same.

The Strike Lite from Strike Master is a Robin engine so the gas cap would be different.

If you are concerned about gas leaking from the cap while in your vehicle you can purchase an auger case to contain any gas spills.

Buy your auger based on the features/over all performance of a auger instead of the gas cap.

Thanks for the responses----but I was concerned more about leakage from the fuel system as a whole---carburator--fuel line--exaust when laid on its side. My current auger has never leaked but I've had friends units that seemed like they were always leaking. thanks

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
