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
