    Default Filling fuel tank on Carolina skiff

    I have a 2016 22 foot Carolina skiff and every time I try to fuel up my inboard fuel tank the nozzle just keeps clicking off as if the tank is full and it takes forever to fill the tank. Anybody have any ideas why this problem just occurred over the winter

    Check your tank vent. As you fill the tank, the air has to escape easily. Make sure there are no bellies (sags, low points) in the vent line between tank and the exterior vent. If there is a low point, fuel from the last fill up will collect. It takes quite a lot of pressure to overcome the weight of the collected fuel. Also check the exterior vent itself for blockage.
