Fuel running out from top tank

Post by kristian009 » Thu Aug 10, 2017 9:57 pm

Hi.

I've noticed when I get my fuel tank full, when i accelerate, fuel will spill out from the front of the tank. I fill my tank to the top where the rubber starts. Does anyone else have this problem? Or is it me overfilling?

Thanks

Kristian.

Sounds like your tank is not venting properly. I had this problem with my Trump and it turned out my tank vent tube (under tank) was kinked. Not sure where that is on the 1290 SD

Not normal. I fill mine to the neck all the time no leaks. Check the gasket in the lid and the surface of the tank it mates to for anything stuck on it breaking the seal.

I think maybe I explained a bit wrong.

I think the fuel comes in front of the ignition lock. I tryed to look underneath it, seems like its some sort of waste pipe for fuel right under the ignition lock(?) Just weird its no hose connected to it.

I uploaded a picture to try explain where it comes from.

The fuel starts coming where the dot is, and moves with the arrows.

Thanks for the reply.

Worth to mention, this is a 2016 model. And I'm from Norway

Is that where the fuel goes if you spill it around the tank neck under the cap while fueling up. Kind of like an overflow? I'll check when I get home from work.
