Fuel Tank Vent Issues

Recommended Posts

Anyone having issues filling the tank with Fuel?  On my 2018 R222, and my previous 2016 R180 every 3-5 seconds the fuel pump stops thinking it's full of fuel.  I have to do that over and over for about 30 minutes to fill the tank.  Sounds like vent issues.  Anyone else have this going on?

This post on The Hull Truth's Robalo Cayman Thread mentions that a too-long vent hose on a Cayman inhibited proper venting when fuel pooled in a low spot of the sagging hose.

Additionally, Attwood's installation instructions (PDF) describes maintenance of their Fuel Vent, which includes cleaning an internal wire screen that may become clogged with spider webs or other debris that can inhibit the effectiveness of the fuel vent.

Good luck!
