Gas leak. This is odd.....
I was just under the rearend looking at codes. Everything was fine. Went back to the garage to load up for the dump and smell gas. Puddle under the tank. Find out it's coming out the vent tube on the corner of the tank. Thought maybe the tank had a bunch of pressure, so I undid the cap and gas gushed out everywhere. It was like there was more gas in the tank than it was rated for. Right now the gas is right at the lip of the neck, like it's completely full. I think I filled it a few days ago. And had driven it at least a few miles home.
Is there some kind of vapor lock? Never had this happen before. One minute it's fine, the next it's over flowing and I never moved or even tried starting it. I opened the garage door earlier, but no sun on it, or, is it very warm out.
I don't want to try and start it until the gas that over flowed dries up in case I somehow get a spark from the wires at the pickup on the tank. The gas flowed from one side of the tank to the other. Keeping the cap off at the moment.
ps. gas is still dripping out the filler neck.
