    "I have a 1980 Chriscraft with a Volvo Penta 305 4 barrel quadrajet.
    When i leave the boat set for a week it starts very hard, i have to pump it about twenty times.
    it seems like the fuel leaks out of the carb.
    If I put a few drops of fuel manually in the Carb it starts right up.
    Anyone have any suggestions."

    "That's normal...especially in warm weather.
    The gas does not leak out, it evaporates.
    Putting fuel in the carb manually is not without some safety risks."
